Brighton Marina – clarification

A story which appeared in Tuesday’s Argus newspaper claimed that discussions were going on ‘behind the scenes’ between Brighton & Hove City Council and Explore Living over their proposals to redevelop part of the Marina. I would like to make it clear to residents in the area that this is categorically not the case.

As far as I am concerned, the decision back in July by the Secretary of State, Eric Pickles, to dismiss Explore Living’s plans is the final word on this matter. They are, of course, entitled to submit a fresh application but as yet, I am not aware that one is forthcoming.

Undoubtedly, the Marina is a very important site for future development, for providing housing and employment, and we are looking forward to working with developers who can offer a first class scheme that will work well for the area. Our aim is to make sure that the regeneration of the Marina enhances the site and is of lasting benefit to residents. This will form the basis of any future negotiations about the site.
