Our concerns about Police Community Support

In April 2017, Sandy Thomas (from The Round Hill Society committee) wrote to The Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner seeking explanations for:-

  • the severity of cuts to front-line neighbourhood policing (e.g. PCSOs' jobs) in the context of the overall policing budget, 
  • delays experienced by several Round Hill resident in getting through to Sussex Police on their non-emergency 101 line.

Click HERE to read Sandy's expression of Round Hill's concerns and the reply from Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner's Office.

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.
