Letters: Developments On The Marina

Published by on Sunday, 20 September 2009No Comment

How many citizens of Brighton and Hove, and the many tourists who visit our seafront, realise that the famous White Cliffs of Dover start right here in Kemp Town?

The views of the cliffs with the South Downs rolling down to the sea are enjoyed by motorists, bus passengers, cyclists and walkers who travel along the A259. They are our largely unspoiled heritage.

Xplore Living’s large proposed development in the Marina was turned down by the Planning Committee of Brighton & Hove City Council last December but they are appealing next month against that decision.

If the Appeal is upheld we will no longer see any of the beautiful cliffs as we look east and instead there will be densely packed concrete tower blocks coming up over the height of the cliffs. To prevent this please download our petition which you will find at and which must be returned to the address given no later than the 4th October.

Help Save our Seafront both for our citizens and tourists.
