Odour from WTS? Tel. 0800 80 70 60 The Environment Agency

This facility, which becomes unacceptably smelly every year from mid April, continues (May 2017) to subject local residents to unpleasant wafts of odour. Attempts to mask this through the use of powerful industrial deodorant add to the unpleasantness of using our gardens since the deodorant takes over from any pleasanter smells available to us between wafts of rotting food waste.

Please participate in this important appeal:

Appeal: Land to the rear of 101 Roundhill Crescent

Round Hill Jumble Trail: Sun 11th June 2017





















A "jumble trail" is like a "jumble sale". The trail is around different locations in Round Hill i.e. outside the homes of those who want to offer stalls. It doesn't cost anything to participate and you can sell unwanted stuff (e.g. household bric-a-brac, toys, books, plants, home-made cakes, art & crafts) for your own profit or for charity.

A map is published showing the location of the addresses taking part without revealing your full name or house number. 'Those who might want to buy' use the map to follow the trail. To get your address on the map, contact Jane Power via The Round Hill Community Noticeboard or put a note through any of the following letterboxes:

  • 55 Princes Road, or
  • 33 Richmond Road, or
  • 36 Richmond Road


Further information will be given in the June 2017 Round Hill Reporter - the printed newsletter which The Round Hill Society hopes to get through Round Hill letterboxes a week before the event. Bargain hunters can follow a map showing stall locations which will be on the Round Hill Society noticeboards (wall in Ashdown Rd and end of Princes Rd outside Red White & Rose), pinned to posts in the street and available on all stalls.

1. Odour from WTS? Tel. 0800 80 70 60 The Environment Agency

Nuisance continues from The Waste Transfer Station. Please phone if you smell unreasonable odour so that we can continue to highlight:

[A] the unsuitable location at Hollingdean Depot for processing food waste so near to residents homes and gardens

[B] the unsuitable building design of the Waste Transfer Station: i.e. not fit for purpose as it cannot prevent escapes of dust particles and odour.

The operating licence issued by The Environment Agency also covers unreasonable noise. Phone them about this and not The Council (Veolia's main client).

2. Landlords and Letting Agents - a need for accreditation

£20,000 / £14,000 fines unlicensed landlords of shared houses
Read our article on Houses of Multiple Occupation [HMOs]

See the The Debrief's campaign calling for the end of letting agent fees.



Please see events listings for music currently on. Many music venues re-open in the spring.

Learn an instrument Learn a musical instrument - since the time of the Prince Regent, Brighton has gained a reputation for music teaching and performance. The abundance of teachers in our city means that it is easy to find help in learning an instrument.
