Message from Brighton & Hove City Council

Kubic Apartments – New Development

We are all keen to let these flats as soon as possible and understand how frustrating it must be for potential residents. We are in the process of finalising preparation in view of offering these properties and hope that residents will be able to move as soon as possible. Until the surveyor has visited to confirm all works have been completed to allow for occupation, we cannot confirm a date.  We will continue to provide future updates as necessary. 

Message from Southern Housing:

Due to unforeseen circumstances with the contractor building the Preston Barracks (Saunders Park View) properties, all adverts have been withdrawn to allow applicants to continue bidding. The properties will be readvertised once a new contractor has been instructed to carry out building works however we do not have a timescale for when this will be. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
