Longley Planning Application – to be discussed 11/9/2018

There’s no doubt that the plans for the Longley Estate (former MasterTiles) and redevelopment of Vantage Point will make a vast difference to the London Road skyline. Both plans are huge compared with New England House.

The Longley Planning Application has been filed with the Council Planning Department and is viewable at this location.  The reference number is BH2018/02598

It states:  Demolition of existing buildings and redevelopment to provide: 3,333sqm of office/research/development floorspace (B1 (a)/(b) use), 308sqm of flexible commercial/retail floorspace fronting Elder Place (B1 (a)/(b) and A1-A4 use), 208 residential units (C3 use) in buildings ranging between 3 and 18 storeys plus roof plant level, together with associated car and cycle parking, further plant at lower ground level, supporting facilities and landscaping. | Longley Industrial Estate New England Street & Elder Place Brighton

Please note carefully the before and after side views (“elevation”).

Petition about car parking in zone J south of the railway line

Since it first started between Ditchling Rise and Viaduct Road, Zone J has increased in area hugely and now people from far away can park their cars in local streets in order to visit the cinema, or pub, or leave their car for long periods while they fly away on holiday. This prevents locals from parking in their own streets overnight. This was not the original deal.

There is a petition to complain about this – if you agree please sign here before noon on 26th June 2018 when the complaint with be brought to the Council Environment Committee.

The petition says (in summary):

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to make it so that residents in Zone J south of the railway line are once again able to park our cars near our homes at night. e.g. by dividing the zone at the boundary of the railway line
