Home > News > Secretary of State decision on Brighton Marina development

The Secretary of State, in an appeal recovered for his determination, has refused permission for a major mixed residential and commercial scheme at the Brighton Marina. The proposed development included up to 1,000 residential units, in nine buildings ranging from 8 to 28 storeys. The Secretary of State followed the recommendation of his Inspector, who held a public inquiry between 23 March 2021 and 19 April 2021. He found that the benefits of the scheme, including the provision of housing, were outweighed by the impacts in relation to design, the setting of heritage assets and the South Downs National Park, and living conditions.
