Brunswick Area Character Statement – respond by 4th May

Give us your views on an updated character statement designed to help preserve, protect and enhance the special character of the Brunswick Town Conservation Area.

The last character statement was published 25 years ago and needs refreshing. Consultants RSK Group have been commissioned to review the area and oversee the development of the new statement. This will help guide future development proposals, ensuring designs are sensitive to and retain the unique character of the area. 

It will also help developers produce proposals which are more likely to be successful and support council officers in providing consistent advice. 

A draft of the Brunswick Town Conservation Area Character Statement has now been produced for wider public consultation until 5pm on Wednesday 4th May 2022, and can be viewed here

An online survey has been provided (accessed by following the link above) to allow you to share your views on the draft Character Statement. Alternatively, if you wish to submit a bespoke response you can do so by sending an e-mail to conservation@brighton-hove.gov.uk.

Councillor Phélim Mac Cafferty said:

“Brunswick Town Conservation Area is often described as one of the most important in the country, so it’s incredibly important that we continue to take care of this beautiful area. The character statement helps to do just that. 

“This area has a stunning and unique character and appearance. From the graceful Charles Augustin Busby designs of a new stand-alone town at Brunswick Square and Terrace to Decimus Burton’s Adelaide Crescent, we want residents to give their views on how the conservation area is managed in the future.   

“As well as preserving our historic buildings the consultation also looks to the future and how we manage the community’s public and open spaces in this neighbourhood. ”
