Sub standard flats plan for The Astoria in Brighton set to be rejected

27th January 2016

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in The Argus.

Councillors have been advised to reject plans to demolish The Astoria in Brighton at today’s planning committee and build new flats in its place.

Council officials have said the flats are not of sufficient quality to replace the grade II-listed building.

Planning officers said the overall standard of accommodation is not “considered acceptable” with flats with windows on just one wall having insufficient natural light, a lack of privacy and “vulnerable to potential noise disturbance” from the inner courtyard.

Other objectors to the development include The Theatres Trust and The Cinema Theatre Association who said the case for demolition had not been made and that the historic building could be restored and re-used.
