Controversial plans to redeveloped a Brownfield site with hundreds of high-rise flats have been slammed by neighbours.

Moda Living submitted plans to build 824 new homes off Sackville Road in Hove last year. The application will be reviewed by Brighton and Hove city council's planning team. Developers say it will create hundreds of new jobs and provide a sustainable community to be proud off.  Moda Living put in new plans for the site in November, but neighbours have accused the company of a "brute force attempt" to get permission to build, and some have said it has become a "war of attrition".

Concerns over traffic,pollutio, lack of investment in public services and schools, and the "dominating" height of the blocks has been expressed.
