THESE are the first images of plans for the new BRIGHTON PALACE PIER sign.

The attraction's new owner, Luke Johnson, announced in 2016 that he would return the word Palace to its rightful place in the name of the attraction.

It is to be called the Brighton Palace Pier.

Now images of the signage - including detailed sketches showing how the sign will be illuminated with individual bulbs in traditional style - are available on the planning application submitted to the council.

More to follow.
