Brighton and Hove City Council

Brighton and Hove City Council’s ‘revised preferred options’ document identifies seven key areas of change for the city. The document clearly and succinctly sets out what is wanted in each of these priority areas.

The seven key areas of change are:

  • Brighton Centre and Churchill Square Area
  • Brighton Marina and Black Rock
  • Lewes Road
  • New England Quarter and London Road
  • Eastern Road and Edward Street
  • Hove Station Area
  • Shoreham Harbour and South Portslade.

For each, a short introduction sets out the context of the area, its role in the city, along with issues and opportunities. A list of local priorities is then identified as well as a “mini vision” which sets out the preferred option.

The supporting text references other local strategies and provides links to other local development documents, such as supplementary planning documents. A list of ‘implementation actions’ identify how the preferred option for each area will be achieved.

The document clearly sets out the council’s aspirations for change and expectations for delivery.
