Homes for Brighton & Hove undertook an extensive public consultation before submitting a planning proposal to provide 250 affordable homes on land situated alongside Coldean Lane, to the north west of Varley Park.
Following feedback from the public, the changes we made to the design included changes to the road junction to include a right turn filter lane and two pedestrian crossing islands; 30mph speed signage to improve safety on Coldean Lane; a reduction to the height of the residential blocks and an increase in green space, public footpaths and play spaces. The design team also responded to concerns about parking by increasing car parking bays from 120 to 162, which offers parking for 65% of homes, 15% more than vehicle ownership studies recommend. The team also proposed a car club space, which the whole community can benefit from.
The planning application has been submitted to the Brighton & Hove planning department. It is expected that the plans will be reviewed by the planning committee and a decision will be made by Summer 2019.
