Plans submitted to demolish the building next to the Prince Albert in Brighton

PLANS have been submitted to demolish a former car hire shop next to a historic pub and replace it with shops and holiday accommodation.

Patricia Camping of Camping’s Luxury Coaches, which owns the property at 47 Trafalgar Street in Brighton, wants to demolish the dilapidated building and build a four-storey commercial building and two holiday accommodation in its place.

The site, which sits next to the listed Prince Albert Pub, has been vacant since car and van rental company Thrifty moved out.

According to the planning documents, there should be an “entrance courtyard, lobby and barrier-free bicycle cellar” on the ground floor.

In addition, nine commercial units would be built from the basement to the second floor and two holiday apartments on the third floor with a roof terrace.

The application’s planning statement said the proposed development would replace the “unattractive” building that is “detrimental” to the area with a “contemporary” building that will create jobs.

The applicants incorporated feedback gathered during a pre-application process into the draft submission.

The planning statement states: “The building has no architectural value and harms the environment of the nature reserve.

“The site is identified in the North Laine Conservation Area study as being particularly detrimental to the character of the existing building and is detrimental to the area surrounding the conservation area and adjacent inn.

“The proposed scheme involves the demolition of the existing shed and the provision of a quality, contemporary replacement that also alludes to the traditional design, vernacular and rhythm of the adjacent buildings through the window spacing and arrangement, as well as the mansard roof and parapet wall, on the below steps to follow the slope of the road.

“Overall, the proposed redevelopment would bring significant investment to the site, removing an existing damaging building that had been identified for redevelopment for a number of years and providing a sympathetically designed replacement building.” Plans submitted to demolish the building next to the Prince Albert in Brighton
