Waterfront Project

More information on the plans to develop the seafront around the Brighton Centre

About the project 

The Waterfront project is a multi-million pound scheme to: 

  • redevelop the Brighton Centre site 

  • extend the Churchill Square shopping centre 

  • provide a new replacement conference centre and entertainment venue in the city 

Plans for the Waterfront are currently at an early stage. It is a long-term and large-scale project that we’re working on with Aberdeen Standard Investments. 

Relocating the Brighton Centre 

A new Brighton Centre will ensure we can continue to compete with the bigger venues for large conferences and major act tours to support our local economy. 

Until 5 December 2020 when the council agreed to postpone proposals, the Black Rock site had been the preferred location for the relocation of the Brighton Conference Centre. These plans are on hold currently. 

The Brighton Centre will continue to remain open for the foreseeable future. You can contact the Brighton Centre team to find out about holding conferences and events on the Brighton Centre website
