£10m plans for family housing
Dozens of family homes could be built as part of a £10million redevelopment of an industrial estate.
The first pictures of the proposal to replace the low-rise industrial blocks in School Road, Hove, can now be seen.
The proposal will be on show in more detail at an exhibition this week before a planning application is submitted to Brighton and Hove City Council.
Ross Barbour, the managing director of Crowborough-based Cross Stone Urban Regeneration, said: “We’re very excited about School Road and really looking forward to moving it forward.
“We believe we can do something there which is quite different from other developments in Brighton and Hove.
“We’re looking forward to receiving feedback from the community to our proposals, which we feel are appropriate for the scheme’s location and provide much-needed homes as well as business space.”
Discussions about the site, which contains about 52,000sqft of industrial units, have been ongoing with the local authority for about a year.
The plot, on the east side of the road opposite West Hove Infant School, includes Tyre Express and Westows play area.
The proposals are to provide 58 two and three bedroom homes, four flats and 15,000sqft of employment space.
A public consultation is being held on Thursday, January 31 from 3.30pm to 7pm at the Written Word Church in School Road.
Mr Barbour said work would start soon after planning permission was granted, but only once it had worked with occupiers to help find new premises with minimum disruption.
