The strategic objectives help to deliver our vision for the future of the Hove station area. These objectives relate to land-use issues and provide the framework to develop our plan policies and proposals. They are broad statements of intent linked to the issues we’re seeking to address through the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan.
