BRIGHTON and Hove Albion Football Club has re-submitted plans for a new state-of-the-art training ground in Lancing.

The club said it had re-submitted the plans in order to address issues raised by residents and Lancing Parish Council.

The Seagulls submitted the new plans to Adur District Council on July 2, and a planning decision is expected at some point in the late summer or early autumn.

Among the changes to the plans are proposals for construction traffic to move through land being developed for a nearby golf course, rather than Mash Barn Lane, and measures to restrict noise pollution.

Albion director Martin Perry, who is overseeing the project, said, “on the whole, the residents of Lancing have been very supportive”.

He added: “People are keen to see the social and economic benefits the facility will bring to the local community. However, through the planning consultation process, residents have raised some issues, and the revised application has been designed to address these issues.”
