University of Sussex – new West Slope Development

artist's impression

The University of Sussex has launched its consultation period for further expansion following its East Slope development.

Of concern to the Commission is that the West Slope development (artist’s impression above) will involve the demolition of several Basil Spence buildings forming the original curtilage of the 1961 university site.

These are York House, Kent House and Lancaster House.

The planning application is available here for comment.

An exhibition of the development will be available for public view at the Jubilee Library, Jubilee Street, Brighton: Saturday 25-Sunday 26 January and Saturday 1 February 10am-5pm (except on Sundays when library opens at 11am).
