The Issues

Population growth, housing shortages, schools, traffic, etc.

Planning Problems:

The local population is growing much faster than regional and national averages. Our members tell us housing provision is a major issue. The lack of health services and school places also needs to be addressed. Furthermore, the area is severed by a railway line with poor crossings between north and south.

We want to avoid uncoordinated, piecemeal, project-by-project redevelopment that would exacerbate problems with parking and congestion. We want development that does not clash with the conservation areas and heritage architecture (Poet’s Corner, etc).

Planning solutions:

Brighton & Hove City Council has big plans to develop the neglected area around Hove Station (DA6). In response, local residents and businesses have identified several planning issues and development opportunities (see image gallery for examples) and we are writing a Neighbourhood Plan to influence this development. 

There are development opportunities for improving existing dwellings, streetscape, public realm and energy efficiency. We’re running a number ‘Have Your Say’ events and local neighbourhood projects to improve the area in the short term. Please get in touch if you would like to be involved.  Further reading: Our vision | Our objectives.

Neighbourhood Plan Part 1

See the Plan document for a full Area Profile, including:
Character, Context, Social Stats and Neighbourhood Planning Issues.

After you have read the Plan, we’d love to know if you agree with our analysis of Hove as it is now; and how best to adapt to the regeneration which is about to happen?
