Development threat to Brighton's Preston Park

Written by William Shaw

Developers Urban Splash have submitted proposals for a 231 flat development on Brighton's Preston Road, overlooking Preston Park. Residents and local civic bodies complain that not only will the building affect the character of the area and the Grade II listed park, but architect's working with The Brighton Society calculate that the building's twin towers, the highest over 160 feet tall, will seriously shadow the park during six months of the year.

Update: Mid-Sussex District Plan

Written by CPRE Sussex

Important - Mid Sussex District Plan on Hold

Mid Sussex DC has decided not to submit its own district plan for public examination until the coalition government has rescinded the South East Plan.

This is important because the Plan imposed a very high housing allocation that would have resulted in overwhelming building levels. We have received mixed signals on the timing of the repeal, but it may be before the end of the year. In the meantime, neighbourhood groups are campaigning against the planned urban extension to Burgess Hill, development sites in Haywards Heath and proposals to build to the south west of East Grinstead.
