City Plan Part Two

From Brighton & Hove Council

City Plan Part Two – Scoping Consultation

I am writing to advise you that Brighton & Hove City Council has started work on Part Two of the City Plan and has published a Scoping Paper for consultation. 

The City Plan Part Two will identify and protect smaller development sites for housing and other uses such as community facilities. The Plan will also include detailed planning policies which will be used to assess planning applications, in line with the overall approach set out in the recently adopted City Plan Part One. 

The Scoping consultation is an important early stage in preparing the plan. You are invited to comment on the matters you think should be included in the City Plan Part Two and to also let us know if you have any sites you wish us to consider allocating for development in the Plan.

The Scoping Paper and accompanying Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report are available to view and download from the Council’s website at: where the formal notification of the start of the preparation of the City Plan Part Two, further information and a summary of the Scoping Paper can also be found.

We recommend that you make your comments using the council’s online consultation portal: This will help us handle your comments quickly and efficiently.

Responses can also be submitted:

By email to 

By post to Planning Policy Team, Brighton & Hove City Council, Room 201 Kings House, Grand Avenue, Hove BN3 2LS

The City Plan Part Two Scoping Document and accompanying consultation documents are also available to view at the customer service centres at Hove Town Hall and Bartholomew House, Brighton and at all city libraries*, during normal opening hours.

All comments must be received by the Council no later than 5pm on Thursday 22 September.

We look forward to hearing from you.
