Plans for the redevelopment of the Corn Exchange and the Studio Theatre in Brighton have been unveiled.

The plans are part of the £35m revamp of the Royal Pavilion, Dome and Corn Exchange.

The application includes new seating in the Corn Exchange and an extension to the west with new foyers, a bar, box office, stairs and lifts.

New side balconies, dressing rooms and a lift are proposed for the Studio Theatre.

The Arts Council pledged £6m to the project, but an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for funding was unsuccessful.

A council spokesman said it would continue to work with its partners and key stakeholders to develop its approach for future funding applications in the coming months.
