This seems likely to become another of Brighton’s problem areas. On 5 April 1981, I had these photographs taken, thinking that comprehensive redevelopment of this rather shabby area was likely to take place before long. I was mistaken. Known as the Golden Lane project plans were agreed by the Planning Officers of Brighton and Hove (at the rear, buildings go through to Waterloo Street, Hove) but recession, intervened. Since then little had been done here except that the large central area of business premises has been demolished and the Western Street frontage is boarded up. This was formerly the Anchor Brewery, Golden Lane, given up some years ago. Looking down to Embassy Court, showing 5/11 Western Street still there.
