Firm Gets Marine Licence for Phase 1 of Brighton Marina Development (UK)

Leading law firm Michelmores solicitors has successfully obtained marine planning permission for Phase 1 of the £235 million Brighton Marina Development.

Securing the grant of the Licence has enabled construction work to commence on the development which has taken 10 years to come to fruition.

The overall development includes over 800 homes, a new yacht club and RNLI building, a multi-purpose sports court, children’s play areas, doctors’ surgery, indoor / outdoor community space and a 40-storey tower which will be the tallest building in Sussex.

Andrew Oldland QC, Head of Michelmores’ Marine Regulation Team, said:

We are delighted to have been involved in this very challenging project. The licensing application process for this development was complex, not least because the development site is located adjacent to one of the newly designated Marine Conservation Zones.”

A Marine Licence is required from the Marine Management Organisation for a wide range of activities which include construction, alteration or improvement of any works up to the mean spring high tide water mark.

Lara Moore, a solicitor in Michelmores’ Marine Regulation Team explains:

Coastal development projects (including those located on tidal rivers) may require both a Marine Licence and terrestrial planning permission. The interaction between the two can be fraught with difficulty and it is important to understand fully the processes and requirements of both regimes in order to carry out development work sucessfully and prevent costly delays.”
