Fighting hyper development of Brighton Gasworks

AGHAST are raising money to afford the expertise that will help our community fight the unsafe & inappropriate hyper development of the Brighton Gasworks site.

AGHAST stands for ACTION on GASWORKS HOUSING AFFORDABILITY SAFETY and TRANSPARENCY. 

In Summer 2020, Berkeley Homes/St William started a poorly advertised consultation on their plans to redevelop the East Brighton gasworks site into 9 tower blocks of new luxury flats up to 15 storeys high for 700 owners.

The site is currently more appropriately earmarked on the adopted Brighton City Plan Pt1 as offering scope for a mixed development of 85+ dwellings plus commercial and semi-industrial space.

AGHAST was formed by concerned residents in the mixed community around the site who share grave concerns about St William’s plans.  Initially aiming simply to do the work St William hadn’t managed to, and inform the community about what was being proposed, we have since started to learn about the environmental and planning issues involved and understand the huge problems that the current plans pose.
