Brighton garages demolished for affordable housing

Garages on housing estates across Brighton have been demolished to make space for dozens of "affordable" homes.

According to Brighton and Hove City Council, the demolition is part of a £100m house building programme.

Initially 29 homes will be built, with more than 500 planned overall.

Councillor Liz Wakefield said: "This is an opportunity to build new homes that are not only eco-friendly but save us millions in the long term because they are wheelchair friendly."

The former garage sites include ones in Hollingdean, Hangleton and Portslade.
