Planners are being urged to turn down a green housing scheme on the edge of Shoreham Harbour when they discuss it next Wednesday (22 February).
The Portzed scheme, at the Hove end of the harbour, is for six buildings up to five and a half storeys high on the Kingsway side of the site.
A report to councillors said that the location was not suitable for such tall buildings although one of a similar height was approved for a neighbouring plot.
The Portzed scheme has, however, attracted opposition from people living in Kingsway and some of the roads off it.
Residents criticised the size and scale of the buildings and the potential noise of five sets of helical wind turbines.
Boho Green, the developer, offered to drop the wind turbine plans but Brighton and Hove City Council refused to accept the amendment and demanded that fresh plans be submitted.
The council’s planning committee will discuss the unamended plans, ignoring Boho Green’s concession.
The report to councillors added that the development would result in a significant loss of light that would affect people living opposite the site.
The scheme would also involve demolishing and replacing the existing Magnet showroom in Basin Road North and includes parking spaces.
