Planners approve 28 new homes in Preston Road

From Brighton & Hove News







Planners have approved 28 new homes on the site of an old council children’s home in Preston Road, Brighton.

Housing association Southern wants to replace a 1950s link building between the two existing Victorian villas and turn the complex as a whole into 22 flats. The flats will have one and two bedrooms and two of the ground-floor flats will be wheelchair-accessible.

Southern also plans to build a terrace of six two-storey houses at the rear of the site, with three bedrooms each.

Eleven of the new homes will be classed as “affordable”, with eight of those for rent and three for shared ownership.
