Councillor Lynda Hyde, Chair of the Planning Committee, has written to the Argus concerning three of the properties mentioned in the earlier Brighton Bits post "The changing face of Kingsway". She says:-
"Regarding Lawnscroft, the former nursing home, Brighton and Hove City Council’s officers have been in contact with the owners of the property who have agreed to demolish the building by the end of this month and begin implementing their approved planning permission.
Enforcement officers have also been in touch with the owners of the properties at 149-151 Kingsway. Following a recent refusal for planning permission, we are asking the owners to improve the appearance and condition of these properties.
If improvements are not made to the appearance of these sites, the council may take formal action."
