The Planning Forum, attended by members of the Regency Society and Hove Civic Society hovecivicsociety.org meets monthly to discuss planning applications which the Forum considers significant.
Each society forms its own view on the applications and decides what action, if any, to take.
YMCA seeking to build support housing in Moulescoomb
The proposal is for a three/four storey building for self-contained living spaces as an addition to their 'move on' supported accommodation programme. Thirty dwellings accessed by external galleries and with communal indoor and outdoor amenity space will, if approved, provide affordable housing for up to two-years for each individual to prepare them for independent living.
The Regency Society welcomes this application for much-needed and adequately designed 'move on' housing to encourage eventual independent living. At the same time, the immediate neighbourhood will benefit from the improved street scene .
