Planning permission has been granted for the £300m regeneration of an area around a derelict barracks in Brighton.

Regeneration specialist U+I, working in partnership with the University of Brighton, plans to deliver a mix of 370 new homes and nearly 1,400 purpose-built student bedrooms.

The regeneration plan for the derelict barracks has been drawn up by architects Hassells, Studio Egret West, TP Bennett and Stride Treglown and will also include a new home for the university’s Business School.

U+I will also deliver a 50,000 sq ft hub for start-up businesses and entrepreneurs.

Richard Upton, Deputy Chief Executive of U+I, said: “The Preston Barracks project is one of the largest and most ambitious regeneration projects to have been brought forward in Brighton for a number of years.

“This latest planning approval cements U+I’s status as a specialist in PPP and continues to grow our pipeline of large, complex regeneration projects, which include Circus Street in central Brighton, which is currently under construction and Blackhorse Lane in Walthamstow, which was consented earlier this summer.”
