Brighton and Hove Council is piloting the city’s first low-traffic neighbourhood scheme in Hanover – between Richmond Terrace, Albion Hill, Queen’s Park Terrace and Elm Grove. The aim to to transform the area into Hanover Liveable Neighbourhood. This is a wonderful opportunity to optimise our outdoor space, increase opportunities for active travel and create safer, calmer streets for everyone. (Full project page https://hanoverandelmgrove.net/home/liveable-neighbourhoods/ )
Some ideas might include…
- Safer areas so that kids can play outside
- Cycling and scooter lanes
- Filtering car access using planters or bollards
- Widening pavements
- Creating parklets – small, usually green spaces – for sitting and socialising
Here is a forum for you to put forward your own ideas as to what would improve our streets: https://padlet.com/e_hills/61sc6lvowyp3
Have your say in where you would like to see improvements. Use this digital consultation to ‘pin’ things that you would like to see in your area, tell them where rat running is a problem, and where there are other issues you would like resolved, or new features you would like to see.
At Elm Grove we have asked our pupils to create their own dream, street posters to show what improvements they would like to see to their streets, below are some of the great ones that we have had back so far!
