Albion fans set for permanent park and ride at Brighton Racecourse
6:30pm Thursday 18th July 2013 in News
Brighton and Hove City Council has set Seagull fans flying in the right direction.
Plans have been agreed for land at Brighton Racecourse to offer park and ride on a permanent basis for up to 700 cars for Albion matches.
The facilities will also be used by other outdoor events at the American Express Community Stadium at Falmer.
The land has been used for a temporary park and ride for Albion games for the last two years.
The new plans will act like the temporary arrangements, with eight buses running a shuttle service to and from the stadium.
But the council’s planning committee stressed the park and ride should not take place when there is a race event or other large scale event happening at the racecourse.
The park and ride facility will aid and act as an important part of managing traffic on match days.
Chairman of the council’s planning committee, Councillor Phélim MacCafferty, said: “This is a tried and tested solution that will really help fans and residents alike.
“Working closely with the Albion and the racecourse we believe we have a result that will help with the Albion’s successes well into the future.”
