Green light for £260 million build-to-rent neighbourhood in Hove

Apache Capital and joint venture parter Moda Living, has received the go-ahead from Brighton and Hove City Council to deliver 824 homes (564 new homes for rent and 260 homes for later living) turning a rundown trading estate next to Hove Station into a thriving inter-generational neighbourhood with extensive public gardens. Plans were approved at the Council’s Planning Committee on Wednesday, 4th March. Moda will look to begin developing the site in 2021. 

Working closely with Brighton and Hove City Council, significant changes were made to the submission including increased number of family homes and decreased number of studios, enhanced daylight levels and increased availability of workspace throughout the development. The decision will help address the area’s acute housing shortage – delivering 20 per cent of Hove’s five-year housing supply whilst retaining approximately 70% of the site for use as reimagined public space for the local community including landscaped areas and an abundance of newly planted trees and gardens.
