How can good design be made into policy?

A neighbourhood plan enables a community to influence the design and character of future development in the area where they live.

The Plan (Pt.1 Policies)

Here you will find the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan (HSNP) documents. Part One will be subject to referendum. Our Plan covers the same period as the BHCC City Plan (up to 2030). It develops and elaborates further the strategic framework established by the City Plan for the future development of the Designated Area and will sit alongside the City Plan as the statutory plan for the area. The Neighbourhood Plan is seen by the Forum as providing the policy context for the Hove Station Area Master Plan for the area.

New Waste & Minerals Site Plan adopted (February 2017)

The council’s plans for a new Waste & Minerals Site have been adopted (February 2017). They have allocated a nearby site at Sussex House Industrial Area and noted the following:

“Sackville Road and part of Old Shoreham Road, which are in close proximity to the site, are part of the Brighton, Portslade and Rottingdean 2013 AQMA. Waste management uses may not have a materially different effect on the AQMA compared to other industrial uses. However, proposals should consider the potential for issues relating to air quality, including those relating East Sussex, South Downs and Brighton & Hove Waste and Minerals Sites Plan – Schedule of Suitable Industrial Estates (Adopted February 2017) to vehicle movements, which may affect air quality. Operators may also wish to consider entering into routing agreements. Where appropriate, suitable mitigation should be provided.”
