Conran and Partners’ Brighton homes

Conran & Partners has been given planning for the next stage of a housing scheme in Brighton which will eventually see 1,000 homes built in the city.

The project is for the council and housing association Hyde Group.

The pair are planning to build out the homes, which will be split between shared ownership and affordable rent, over the next five years under an initiative called Homes for Brighton.

The first phase of work is in the Coldean area of Brighton, a 242-homes plot designed by Hampshire practice HGP Architects.

The Conran scheme is smaller with 104 homes and will be built in the Portslade area of the city.

The council has said all the homes will be built for people living or working in Brighton.
