PRESS RELEASE, HOVE, UK
A vital local referendum is being held on February 9th which will give Hove residents the chance to to influence the development of new buildings and infrastructure in the area, including new flats slated for three more prominent sites in the area. Polling cards have already been sent out, and locals need to vote YES to ensure their opinions are heard – and taken into account – by the developers and the council.
Vote YES to get funding for local infrastructure
Critically, by voting YES, the council will be legally required to allocate 25% of developer contributions (CIL) from these future projects, to be invested in improvements to existing local amenities – parks, pavements, roads, shopping areas etc. This will run into hundreds of thousands of pounds in the next few years.
