Conservative Hove Park Ward Councillor, Jayne Bennett, has spoken about new plans to redevelop the Sackville Trading Estate and Corralls coal yard in Hove.
The plans include 600 new homes, 50,000 square feet of offices and 20,000 square feet of ‘cultural industrial space’.
Jayne stated: “We do need new homes but they have got to be in proportion. They need to be in character with the area and there needs to be the infrastructure to support it. We know that the site is going to be developed and it needs to be developed but the local roads could not cope with a development of that size. The traffic lights at Sackville Road and Old Shoreham Road have been over capacity for years.”
