The Conservation Managment Plans (CMP) that set out the repairs required to restore the old Chapel and Pavilion and future maintenance requirements are now available. See here  Chapel   CMP.  Pavilion  CMP.  These documents, agreed between the developers and Brighton and Hove City Council, will support and inform consideration of how these buildings will be used in the future. 

Demolition Schedule

The developers have just advised that followinng following removal of interior structures, the team will demolish buildings as follows;

  • 8-12 June. Headmaster’s house
  • 15-19 June. Computer block
  • 22-26 June. Design classrooms and science block
  • 29 June-10 July. Toilets, swimming pool and other ancillary buildings.
  • 13 July onwards. The school buildings not to be retained (see demolition map below).
  • Early-mid August demolition to finish.

It is important to note that this is a rough guide only which may change as the work progresses. For safety reasons, the demolition contractors anticipate that the Twitten will require a temporary closure for one week whilst the structures closest to it are taken down. Thus will probably be towards the middle to end of July. Prior notice will be given once an exact date is set.
