Playground for the New England Quarter

View looking north-east from Station Approach
Council officers have won their battle to ensure a children’s playground is built on the remaining vacant section of Block K of the station site. Developer McAleer and Rushe Group and landowners Albion Inns Ltd and Cookstown Developments Ltd have withdrawn their appeal against a council enforcement notice to provide the much needed facility on land near Brighton Station.

The McAleer and Rushe Group now have 6 months to complete the children’s playground in accordance with the details submitted to discharge condition 4 of planning permission BH2005/05142. If the work is not completed the council could prosecute or carry out the necessary work and recover the costs.

The provision of this play area was part of the original development brief for the Brighton Station site.

From the Council press release.


  1. Hi,

    Thanks for your post. I've been looking forward to this area being developed for some time. I'd like to use the above photo for a local newsletter. Is this ok?
