Policing concerns in Round Hill

Following severe cuts to local policing including the loss of the Police Community Support Officer dedicated to our area, Sandy Thomas from The Round Hill Society wrote to Katy Bourne's office. Click HERE to read

Possible bid for money from The Community Safety Fund For this, we would need to offer a project to reduce crime &/or improve community safety in Round Hill. This might be something akin to a Neighbourhood Watch, though it does not have to be exactly the same.

We could discuss this at the Round Hill Annual Get-Together - we welcome suggestions / ideas / offers of participation from local residents

Dog fouling & what to do about it yourself
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'.

Click on the mini-picture to the left for a large PDF version which can be printed and displayed. 


If you are thinking of displaying the above PDF near a site where dog poo is becoming a persistent problem, the use of a laminator (they only cost about £30 now) will ensure that it is weather-proof.  The Round Hill Society also has a pavement stencil, which can issue a reminder.

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.
