Hove v Gove: Victory for campaigners over plans to build new free school over playing field

It was a contest billed as Hove versus Gove – and it appears that Michael Gove just blinked.

The Education Secretary has been vilified on the Sussex coast in recent weeks over controversial plans, announced by his department, to concrete over a well-loved playing field in Brighton and Hove, to build a new free school.

However, locals declared victory in their campaign to save the Bhasvic Field, after receiving a letter from the Schools Minister Lord Nash saying that the school would now be built elsewhere.
