This planned retirement village, which recently achieved a resolution to grant consent subject to S106, forms part of a wider masterplan for the Sackville Road site in Hove.

The planned Mayfield village is an integral part of the multi-generational living scheme proposed in conjunction with MODA, who are developing the remainder of the site for Build to Rent (BTR). GFA were the architects for the £60m Mayfield scheme, which comprises 260 apartments plus communal areas, including restaurant, bar bistro, swimming pool and well-being area, events space, gym, shop and village hall. The overall proposal will create a cross-generational residential district with dedicated outdoor space, working space and communal areas on a brownfield site in the centre of Hove, with easy access to public transport facilities, local amenities and services.

Gaunt Francis Architects Director, Toby Adam, said: “This will be a transformational scheme for this under-utilised site in Hove. Working in partnership with MODA and Brighton and Hove County Council has been a challenging, but highly rewarding journey. We look forward to the next steps with excitement”.
