ADP masterplan wins planning appeal

The public inquiry was cut short following early evidence, with Brighton and Hove City Council withdrawing all its objections to the proposals. Its planning committee had originally refused the University’s planning application, against a recommendation for approval by Officers.

The £500 million masterplan will allow the University to expand to 18,000 students.

Roger FitzGerald, Chair of ADP, gave evidence at the Inquiry and said: “There was never any substantive case against this application. The masterplan will dramatically improve the campus, and will extend the principles of Sir Basil Spence’s original vision across the whole of the site. It will ensure that the University can achieve its ambitious plans for the future whilst working to a coherent and unified masterplan.”
