The redevelopment of the Black Rock site will provide an anchor that helps to enable the wider regeneration of Brighton’s Eastern Seafront, with a significant longer-term social dividend.

Theme: Regeneration

Coast to Capital LGF Allocation: £12.11m

Match Funding Contribution: £117.8m

Project Status: Delivering


Summary of Project

The Blackrock site in the east of Brighton has remained derelict and unused for 30 years. As a progressive and growing city, Brighton would benefit greatly from the regeneration of this area.

The Local Growth Funds awarded to the Blackrock Regeneration project will contribute to planning and feasibility studies, surveys, construction and other enabling works.

The Blackrock site will be developed into a world class conference and entertainment venue. This regeneration of the site is part of the bigger ‘Waterfront Project’ which includes redevelopments to The Brighton Centre and Churchill Square’s retail centre. All of which will contribute to future proofing the city’s economy.
