Brighton & Hove City Council has approved plans for a new student housing development in the Co-op building in London Road. Construction work could begin in the new year and students could move in for the academic year 2014-15. More information here:
The planning application number for the application to extend permission and build on the land behind the Open House is BH2012/03286 and the officer is Richard Elder, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
For some reason two identical applications have been made but the first withdrawn The council is refusing to take objections to the first application to the second despite their being identical except for the time limit, but if you have objected to the first then you can simply email Richard to transfer your objections to this application.
Technically the deadline is 7th December but but he confirms that any objections received whilst the matter is being considered for his report will in good practice count as valid. So, if you have not yet objected to the second application please do so now – you have until the target decision date, Friday 7 December.
