We held another Have Your Say Day on Sunday 3rd July at Ralli Hall. Local residents had the chance to speak to forum members, council officers and fellow neighbours. Of course, the main point of discussion was the emerging Neighbourhood Plan. Questions were asked, including what the impact be of the proposed developments would be, including the look of the urban landscape, affordable homes, traffic etc.
We’re asking everyone to sign the online petition “Hove Station footbridge improvement“.
The Hove Station Bridge is continuing to deteriorate. It is unsightly and not effectively cleaned. The absence of lifts makes access to the station from the north side of the railway extremely difficult for people with disabilities and makes using the bridge difficult for people with young children and people carrying heavy luggage or shopping.
Members and supporters of the Hove Station Neighbourhood Forum and local residents urge the Brighton and Hove Council to :
- improve the standard of cleanliness of the footbridge
- identify and implement any short term measures which will improve the appearance of the footbridge
- establish the most appropriate longer term action needed – either major refurbishment or replacement with lift provision
- secure funding from a combination public sector sources and the developer contributions generated by successive major redevelopment projects which will be starting in the vicinity of the bridge next year.
We launched this petition at our Have Your Say event in November last year and now we are launching it on the 38degrees website.
