Hove Station Community Hub – CH1

Hove Station is a major transport hub that has had very little investment for many years.  The area includes shops, small businesses, cafés, bars and pubs and is badly in need of a major environmental public realm uplift. The Forum is proposing to establish a community hub in the immediate vicinity of the Station premises. If you are interested in joining the improvement group and/or helping with petitions and getting the local businesses involved please get in touch.

Article in Brighton and Hove News about the Forum’s “Have Your Say Day”

The Hove Station Neighbourhood Forum is holding a “Have Your Say Day” to share updates on plans to build almost 1,000 homes in the area.

It is the sixth feedback day to be organised by the group and will include information about schemes at the top of Sackville Road, in Newtown Road and Ellen Street.

The forum said that its “big idea” was that regeneration should not be a piecemeal collection of unconnected developments.

Rather, within the framework of a “neighbourhood plan”, it should be co-ordinated, delivering a new Hove Station Quarter and other “community hubs”…

The footbridge is the major north-south pedestrian link, but it is poorly maintained and the absence of lifts at either end render it unusable for wheelchair uses, totally inadequate for people with disabilities and grossly inconvenient for people with luggage, heavy shopping bags or prams.
