DMH Stallard advises on £16 million planning application

30 Sep 2015

DMH Stallard is advising longstanding client, Brighton and Hove Albion FC, on a recently submitted planning application to build a 150-bed hotel and specialist cancer treatment centre next to the American Express Community Stadium. The proposed development, valued at £16 million, could generate an additional 82 jobs and £5.8 million in revenue for the local community per annum.

The hotel, named Brighton Aloft, would be built adjacent to the East Stand of the AMEX and would have a restaurant, a bar, and a gymnasium. The specialist cancer unit would be built in the basement and would be open to NHS patients.

DMH Stallard, who recently announced its five year commercial partnership with Brighton i360, has advised on multiple development projects in Brighton including the development of Amex Stadium, the regeneration of Jubilee Square, and obtaining planning permission for a hotel and office development in the award winning regeneration site, New England Quarter.

DMH Stallard’s Director of Planning, Peter Rainier commented: “We are delighted to be working with Brighton and Hove Albion on this exciting new development. DMH Stallard is committed to Brighton and surrounding areas and will continue to work on projects that support the local community and its businesses.

As well as providing additional revenue and jobs to Brighton and Hove, Brighton Aloft will also but also have a floor dedicated to the treatment of UK cancer patients, something that we desperately need.”

The planning application will be reviewed by both Lewes District Council and Brighton and Hove City Council’s planning committees in December 2015 / January 2016.
