NEW details have emerged of a £15million regeneration scheme.

The Hyde Group plans to regenerate a site on Davigdor Road in Hove to provide 7,500 square feet of Grade A office space, supporting 75 full time jobs.

It will also include the construction of 76 high quality homes, including 40% affordable housing.

The proposal is to demolish the existing building which makes inefficient use of the scarce land available in the city.

The new development would make much more effective use of the site to make a significant contribution to meeting the city’s employment and housing needs – providing new jobs and homes.

Brighton-based architectural practice RH Partnership has designed a striking building which sits well in the street scene, working in conjunction with Chelsea award winning landscape designers Nicholas Dexter Associates.

A basement car park is proposed which has maximised the amount of landscaping available at ground level.

The project will secure inward investment of around £15million in to the city as well job, training and skills opportunities.

Once completed the project is expected to support 75 full time jobs in the offices.

The development would generate £100,000 a year in council tax revenues.

Hyde has pledged to make payments towards community infrastructure including local schools if permission is granted.

Tom Shaw, Hyde’s development director (South), said: “Creative and innovative solutions are needed to tackle the housing shortage in Brighton and Hove and this project appears to us to be a win-win solution for the local area.

“There would be no reduction in employment space on the site and the new grade A offices proposed would actually support more jobs. In addition, another 114 jobs in construction would be supported by the project over a two year build period.

“Hyde has invested approximately £100million into Brighton and Hove over the past two-three years and this further investment reflects our strategy to continue investing into homes and jobs in the city.

“As part of Hyde’s approach to construction, we are committed to investing in training, skills and apprenticeships to provide opportunities for local people looking for a route to get into working in construction.”
