Medina House, the former slipper baths and laundry has been the subject of a number of refused or withdrawn planning applications – the two most recently refused applications sought the demolition of the locally listed building.

To help guide any future development plans for Medina House and the adjacent land, officers from Brighton & Hove City Council have prepared a draft planning brief and are asking residents to for their comments.

The draft planning brief is out for public consultation until 5 pm on April 30, 2013 and everyone is invited to comment on its content.

The document can be viewed via the council’s on-line consultation portal:

Residents are also invited to a drop-in exhibition to be held on April 17, 2013 between 9.30 am – 4.45 pm at Hove Town Hall, Norton Road.
The exhibition material will continue to be displayed at Hove Town Hall, until April 24, 2013

Councillor Geoffrey Bowden, Chair of the Economic Development and Culture Committee said:

“Medina House has a fascinating history and is well loved by the local community.

“I hope residents will take the opportunity to add their comments through the public consultation and help us to produce a final planning brief that will see the building and surrounding area preserved for future generations.”


Comments can be posted during the drop-in exhibitions and/or submitted via the online consultation portal (details above) and/or in writing to:

Planning Strategy & Projects, Room 407-410, Hove Town Hall, Hove BN3 3ZZ or by email to by no later than 5pm on Tuesday April 30 2013.

The results of the consultation will be considered and taken into account by the council in preparing the final version which will be taken to the Economic Development and Culture Committee to seek its approval.
