Plans in: 9 Flats in Converted Shop in Brighton

Plans have been submitted to convert part of the basement and ground floor, plus the first, second and third floors of 61-62 Western Road, Brighton, from retail to residential. The conversion will create nine apartments which will be accessed from a new entrance on Stone Street.

The designs put together by Liam Russell Architects of Brighton, will see the building – which also has elevations onto Castle Street – modified including patching up the render, and replacement of the existing windows to ones more sympathetic to the original building.


Three of the flats will have a single bedroom, one will have three bedrooms and the remaining five will be two-bed apartments. The building previously housed a HMV but has since gone through various short-lived retail incarnation including Brand Centre, Furniture Clearance, Madhouse Clearance and more recently as a Factory Outlet.
