RESIDENTS will next week have the chance to voice their thoughts on a £220 million housing project.

The plans for the 600-home development at the former retail park and coal yard in Sackville Road, Hove, will be revealed at the consultations on Tuesday and Wednesday.

People have been invited by Moda, the developer behind the scheme, to have their say on the proposals.

All of the homes will be rental and Moda has said 43,000 sq ft of commercial space will be created, bringing, it is claimed, hundreds of new jobs with it.

Moda has teamed up with Mayfield, a care provider, to also create an additional 250 homes for elderly people in the area.

A Moda spokeswoman said: “Under draft designs, Moda will create a highly-connected walkable garden community with homes wrapped into large areas of landscaped green space and public realm.

“The development will also include new recreation and employment opportunities, helping to meet the aspiration of the city council and local neighbourhood forum to create a vibrant and integrated community in this part of Hove.

“Mayfield’s provision accommodates an ever-growing need for specialist high quality residential provision as the UK population lives longer.

“Both Moda and Mayfield will both build and manage the development, working to create a community that promotes long-term, healthy, diverse and sociable living environments.”

Moda is currently developing more than 7,000 new homes around the country – but this is the firm’s first project in Brighton.

Developers have promised top quality services for the residents, saying there will be Premier League nutritionists and coaches on hand to ensure they are living in a healthy, sociable environment.

There will also be gardens, roof terraces and entertainment spaces created.

The spokeswoman added: “As with all Moda developments, there will be a range of on-site amenities with substantial areas of shared space provided, including communal lounges, virtual sports simulators, BBQ roof terraces, and bicycle rental.

“Residents will have access to a car club, semi-private gardens and allotments as well as Premier League nutritionists and coaches following a tie-up with Hero, a digital wellness platform.”

The public consultations are being held at Honeycroft, St Barnabas Hall in Sackville Road, with the drop-in exhibition on Tuesday running from 3pm to 6pm.

The Wednesday session is running from 4pm to 7.30pm.
