Forward and Onward

The first public consultation meeting took place this afternoon. A big thank you to all of those who attended. It was a first encounter for many and perhaps the discussions that took place were a little intimidating for some. Nonetheless, it was great to see you all and hear your views about the project.
The people who expressed themselves more voicefully were those whose houses lay directly adjacent to the site and the concerns were taken up very competently by Brighton and Hove City Council. It has to be pointed out that many of those expressing concerns also had a lot of good things to say about the project itself. The site visit that followed illustrated that many will be supportive provided that their concerns are addressed and possible mitigation measures were already being discussed.
Overall, a good thing done. A few frictions, lots of energy, a positive day for Bevendean.

  1. Hi, Just wanted to say how happy I am to hear about your plans for a community garden in Bevendean.
    Such a wonderful idea, just what we need; a positive project!
    I have always been interessted in gardening and growing my own, unfortunately I have little space as well as little knowledge for gardening but this seems to be a great way for me to learn and at the same time work for a good cause.
    Looking forward to hear more about the preparations and being able to help out!
