New coach park approved

5thMay 11

coach-parkingBrighton is a very popular destination for both leisure and business tourism, but one of the issues facing the city has always been where to park coaches for incoming groups. There is existing parking for around 40 coaches on Madeira Drive already but the city council has just approved parking for 30 additional coaches at Black Rock on the seafront. The existing pick up and drop off points are shown in this image – the further spaces will be added along Madeira Drive, to the right

Martin Randall, head of planning and public protection at Brighton & Hove City Council, said: “This is good news for coach drivers as it will provide them with a much more convenient area to park and alleviate coach parking problems in other parts of the city.

“The planning permission is temporary for two years as in the long term, the site is earmarked for the indoor arena and ice rink.”
