Planning application BH2014/00922 proposes the demolition of some existing single-storey buildings and the construction of a two storey building on the site of the Council's Hove Park Gardeners' Depot. The Council thinks it can move the existing facilities to Stanmer Park nurseries. Presumably the consequential extra traffic at Stanmer and on the Lewes Road, and the extra mileage to City Centre gardens are judged not to be important considerations.
|The site at present.|
|Looking NW across Hove Park the new building will be behind the belt of trees to the left of the Engineerium chimney.|
|The building will be large enough to serve 650 pupils|
|Looking east in the Droveway towards the site entrance.|
