The Brighton & Hove City Plan Part One was adopted in March 2016.

The draft City Plan Part Two (CPP2) July 2018 is currently out for a 10 week period of consultation from 5th July to 13th September 2018. More information can be found on the City Plan Part Two webpage.

Download the City Plan Part Two in PDF form.

Comment now on Local Planning Concerns:

1. New owner (28 Crescent Road)'s attempt to make additions and alterations to the permission they purchased along with the narrow strip of land  west of Crescent Rd and east of Belton Rd. See:

2. Attempt to reverse CAR-FREE planning condition for Carelet site. If this is successful, it could create a precedent for reversing the similar condition written into the existing permission for 28 Crescent Road.

Playing out in Round Hill 2018

Mayo Road on Sunday 3 to 5pm Sunday 7th October













Hi all - our next Street Play is next Sunday 7th October 3-5pm Mayo Road.

Volunteers needed (as always!!) to marshal, baking, etc, so please let me know if you can help (just 30 minutes really helps)

At our AGM we agreed to open the event up to people who might like to run table-top sales such as plants, books, good toys and games your children may have outgrown. This needs to be organised by others but if you can plan to get involved please let Kate Rice know (contact details on back of Round Hill Reporter) so that you can be included in publicity for event.

We’d like to thank the whole community, and in particular the residents of Mayo Road for supporting Street Play, and allowing the road closure to keep the children safe. Many thanks Kate Rice

Coming later:
28th October 2018 (Halloween theme).

 If they can do it in Ditchling Road, why can't they make a safe crossing point in Upper Lewes Road?





How many of you have had to grasp a little gap between streams of vehicles when waiting to cross the Upper Lewes Road? As I accompany my daughter on her daily walk to school I wonder: “When will I be able to trust her to cross this treacherous road by herself while there is no safe crossing point?” Read on ....in March 2018 Round Hill Reporter

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]
