Green light for Broadway Malyan's rejigged Hove plans

Broadway Malyan's proposals for Lyon Close in Hove

Practice lops storeys and flats from housing development

Broadway Malyan has won planning permission for a 152-home scheme in Hove after dropping the height of the tallest of the project’s four blocks, and reducing the number of units.

The practice last year lodged plans for 163 new homes and 1,000sq m of commercial space on the site of the Peacock Industrial Estate, half-way between Brighton and Hove stations. The proposals were reworked after initial feedback.

Its original scheme – named Lyon Close and designed for Crest Nicholson – comprised a single-storey podium with undercroft parking and blocks of five to 10 storeys above, but the proposals were reworked to range in height from six to eight storeys. Although the new homes count has reduced by 11, and the office space has been cut to 697sq m, the approved scheme includes two additional live-work units.
