Research project on Round Hill Community

The University of Brighton runs
Community University Partnership Programme.

In 2012, CUPP funded a Round Hill Community Survey. Feedback from this was published in the June 2012 Round Hill Reporter. A detailed report was presented by Yi-Chun Chen, an MA student in Community Psychology.

The design of the survey form took several drafts. The Round Hill Society's  response to residents' feedback has been two-fold:

[1] action - sample of Round Hill events held in 2017

[2] information in support of the community

Reporting pollution from The Dump

ODOUR FROM WTS? Tel. 0800 80 70 60 The Environment Agency

  • Not Veolia, Not The Council: report pollution to the EA
  • Three separate complaints on 1 day prompt a call-out from the EA, which gives Hollingdean Dep its licence to operate & sets conditions
  • Whenever a complaint is logged The Environment Agency will ask the caller to rate the strength of the odour on a scale of 1 to 6. However, their investigating officer already knows exactly why The Hollingdean Waste Transfer Station has been a nuisance to nearby residents ever since the facility came into operation early in 2009.

Dog fouling & what to do about it
Dogs Failure to pick up after a dog has fouled a public open space (such as a pavement, road, park, field, or the beach) could cost the owner a fine of up to £1000. Our Council's Animal Warden Team page links to PDF posters which residents are invited to print and display.

Information on what to do about regular problems with dog waste is given here. Incident reporting can be done at this link under the category 'cleaning'.

Highlighting unremoved dog poo


















Pictured on The Cats Creep: Annie Rimington & 2 RH children.

Neil Pringle from BBC Radio Sussex interviewed Sandy Hawkins from The Round Hill Society on the above idea to encourage owners to clean up after their dogs.  The newspaper article focuses on the health risks (TOXOCARIASIS) posed - especially to young children with the habit of putting their hands in their mouth - by roundworm parasites found in mess from cats, dogs and foxes. 

Both reports emphasize the need to find a good solution which does not prove counterproductive by leading to ill-tempered confrontation.


Learning from thermal images

Thank you to all Round Hill residents who helped the University of Brighton (School of Environment and Technology) with their research. They have used their findings to produce a peer-reviewed publication which was presented at a conference held by the Association of Researchers in Construction Management (ARCOM) in Fitzwilliam College in Cambridge University.










Using a special camera, thermal images were taken of participating Round Hill households in February 2017.

The image reveals where heat is escaping. The University of Brighton carries out wide and varied research in the field of environmental sustainability and the performance of buildings, including evaluation of their environmental impact.
