Planning proposal to convert offices into 30 homes

First published in News

Planners want to convert an office block into more than 30 homes.

Birmingham-based developer Alan Ryall has applied to Brighton and Hove City Council for permission to convert Martello House in Portland Road, Hove, into 30 one-bedroom flats plus a two bedroom flat and a studio flat.

The office site, which has not been occupied since March 2012, would also have 31 car parking spaces for residents.

A final decision on the plans is expected in October.

Going to see a lot more of this under GPDO legislation, as no one wants to lease aging old fashioned office stock with lousy technology provision, and whilst there is a national shortage of residential. Many of the 1960s and 70s office blocks opposite Preston Park are going the same way.

There's lots of Office Space in Brighton & Hove that's been empty for years and could be converted into much needed Flats.
Demand for Office Space is reduced nowadays as more people work from
home on their computers, and a lot of large companies have outsourced their inquiry lines and call centres.

Is this 'affordable housing' or just more stock for developers to profit from? And let's face it, they're ruining B&H.
