Brighton Beach Terrace Restoration Approved

Planning permission and listed building permits have been granted to begin the restoration of the listed Madeira Terrace.

Brighton and Hove City Council Planning Committee voted unanimously in favor of the permit at a meeting today.

The 40 Victorian arches between the Royal Crescent and Shelter Hall will be restored in the first phase of the project.

The building is in “poor condition” and was one of Historic England’s At-Risk Buildings in 2020.

Council President Phélim Mac Cafferty said: “The revitalization of the Madeira Terrace is one of the most important projects the Council has undertaken in a long time.”

The plans aim to repair and protect the cast iron but also include the installation of new seating, lighting and an elevator.

The lift will be installed at the Royal Crescent Steps, allowing 24-hour access to Madeira Drive.

The removal of some parking lots will allow more space on Madeira Drive for pop-ups for food festivals or live music.

The terrace is the longest cast iron structure in the country.

Cllr Mac Cafferty said: “The successful renewal of the Madeira Terrace will continue to enliven the east end of the coast, with special attractions and staged events appealing to residents and visitors alike.

At the meeting, Labor Councilor Daniel Yates said Madeira Terrace was “a jewel in the city’s crown”.

Bill Puddicombe, Chair of the Restoration Advisory Board, said: “The Advisory Board is pleased that the planning application for the first phase of the refurbishment has been approved.

“An important milestone in the project has been reached. We look forward to seeing further progress soon.” Brighton Beach Terrace Restoration Approved
