Demolition of Brighton shops for new student accommodation begins

Demolition of a number of shops has begun to make way for new student accommodation.

The site of the former Iceland, Peacocks and Poundland shops in London Road, Brighton has been fenced off with sections of the building demolished by excavators.

Plans to demolish the former 1930s Marks and Spencer shop and replace it with a five-storey student block were approved by Brighton and Hove City Council last year.

Approximately 156 purpose-built student housing will be built as part of the development, along with new retail space.

The development will feature an entrance at Providence Place, which some residents have expressed support for, to address anti-social behavior and drug issues in the area.

After councilors approved the proposals in February last year, McLaren Property development director David Atherton said: “This new development will remove a derelict building which has unfortunately attracted anti-social behavior and which residents want to see refurbished.”
