Brighton & Hove Council granted planning permission today for the Brighton i360 

With the observation pod rising to 139 metres, the i360 will be the UK's highest observation tower. The i360 is designed by the award-winning London Eye architects, husband and wife team David Marks and Julia Barfield, who announced “We are delighted by this decision and would like to thank everyone who gave their support for this project. This is great news for Brighton and will boost Brighton’s position as a top tourist destination, create 109 full-time jobs, increase tourist revenue by up to £10m and act as a catalyst for regeneration. We hope that the i360 will become an elegant, 21st century symbol for Brighton.”
