Have your say on Brighton and Hove seafront

The Argus: Have your say on Brighton and Hove seafront Have your say on Brighton and Hove seafront

Residents and businesses are to be asked to have their say on how to transform the Brighton and Hove seafront.

Brighton and Hove City Council wants people to come up with ideas for how to improve the look of the eight miles of coastline from Hove Lagoon to Saltdean.

Officials want to create a seafront strategy to set out ways to develop the unique character of the area to create attractive environments for residents, businesses and visitors throughout the year.

Madeira Drive is earmarked as a key area for improvement, with the emphasis on family leisure attractions.

Among the topics to be considered will be the regeneration of rundown areas, ways to attract more tourists and ideas to encourage more people to use the seafront to stay active.

The seafront is the city’s chief attraction, pulling in more than eight million visitors a year and contributing an estimated £732 million to the local economy.

On November 15 councillors are expected to approve the beginning of public consultation on the strategy.

Geoffrey Bowden, the chair of the policy and resources committee, said: “We have to look to the future and ensure the seafront continues to thrive.

Vitally important

We want to broaden and enhance its appeal for visitors and residents – widening out the main tourist area beyond the two piers and providing more year-round appeal.”

Labour councillor Brian Fitch said: “The seafront is one of the major arteries supplying the economic lifeblood of the city. It is vitally important that it is developed and kept up to date.”

Claire Ottewell, the chair of the city’s tourism alliance, said: “Enforcing a compulsory maintenance and decoration standard so all properties on the promenade have to keep their properties well maintained and clean would be a step in the right direction.

“There needs to be more restaurants and better lighting. Let’s light up the West Pier with ambient colour-changing lights, turning an eyesore into something beautiful.”

Gingerman group boss Ben McKellar, who plans to open a new restaurant at The Terraces complex in Madeira Drive, said: “The Hove Lawns area works really well for families but the area around the West Pier is not so attractive and the Madeira Drive end is very underdeveloped.”

Cue: a tonne of Nimby's

Anyway, Madiera Drive is awful so it's good they're going to do something about that. Someone needs to force the Concorde2 to redecorate. That end of Madeira needs a massive facelift.

Around Hove, we just need to decorate the shelters and get the tramps off the beach!

£1000's will be waisted on another consultation that has no money to any improvements anyway.

NO more bus or cycle lanes....... how about getting traffic moving as a way of reducing polution?

An easy and cost effective way to gain money for regeneration would be to have the ability to park in the area people are visiting, at a cost that is affordable, this in turn would attract people to the area, who will spend money, which in turn will provide more to be invested.

Oh one more thing we can all do, VOTE at the next local elections. which can't come soon enough....

Native American dream-catchers every few yards. Trance mood music that keeps the knife-carrying jolly rascal friends of the pcsos calm whilst they drink methadone and super-strength lager delivered free by there personal outreach worker.
Make overseas tourists responsible for cleaning up the dog poo from all the 'scumbags with pit bull' preying on them.

Make it legal for skateboarders to run into and swear at visitors - they do anyway - it seems to be council sanctioned so lets make it official.

Some of the 'chips and sausage' eateries are so awful. It's so sad to see the disgust and distress on visitors faces when they realise they've been ripped-off again. Even trying to take the taste away sometimes involves a 600% mark up on a small bottle of water.

Multi-coloured mood lighting to give the regular scumbags something tacky to mug-along to.

Hovite says...

The problem with the Hove Lagoon Cafe is that it is only open for six months of the year. Hardly a good avert for veganism.

There always used to be a food business running there 365 days a year. Is it running at a loss, and closing is to save money?

Or do they only halfheartedly promote veganism six months of the year?

It should be in the lease that it has to be open to serve to the public throughout the whole year.

Does St Anne's Well Garden cafe close, and is it allowed to?

Every Summer the people that own the current huts spread themselves, their offspring & their barbeques right across the pathway, so it becomes a trip hazard to walk through there.
They own the huts, not the 15 feet of concrete in front of them.

Well here's an idea - a cafe that covers all tastes rather than forcing the Vegan diet on all customers ?

The cycle lane along the sea front is dangerous - find a way to separate cycles from pedestrians. It's especially difficult for tourists who don't expect to walk straight into the path of a bike when they have crossed the road.

Mind you, the Greens will interpret that as 'close the entire seafront to traffic'.

gusset snatcher says...

They can start charging people £3.50 who go in the sea per day then introduce hourly rates with fees increasing to £10 in peak season. They could then use the revenue to build new cycle lanes up Bear Road, Falmer Road, Coldean lane and Ditchling Road. Then next year they could do one up Southover Street, Albion Hill and Elm Grove.
Then they could get rid of the shingle bank by the nudist beach so that passers by can see the hideous specimens that indecently expose themselves. Then they can build little enclosures on Dukes mound with 4ft high palisades around them so that the homosexuals that frequent the area can enjoy their sexual activities without anyone being able to see exposed parts and allowing them to see possible homophobes approaching them.

It would be nice if the very limited seafront parking in King's Esplanade was just occasionally available to local taxpaying residents and not constantly occupied by kerb-squatting vagrants living in their vehicles at the expense of the rest of us. This has been going on for years under every administration and has also appeared online as a recommended free camping site in the City.

The main problem is the basic infrasructure has had its day. We need new joined up and matching paving, lighting, seating, planting and cleaning etc.currently the state of the whole seafront infrastructure is shocking. we need a direct bus from hove lagoon to the marina. smarten up the entrance to the marina and hove lagoon. If it looks nice hopefully people will look after it. Any successful seaside resort here or abroad is because it is well kept and accessible to all. I always enjoy a great local craft and food market, more outdoor entertainment areas, not just for loud music.

the bike rider's seem to have the monopoly over the road network in the town so they can go where they like,even the wrong way against traffic,as so much time and money has been used for them to why not remove the bike lane and restore it to the former use for people to enjoy the promanade.

When the conservatives ran the council and King Alfred hadn't been killed off by the Nimbys, they proposed a low-cost monorail along the seafront from Palace Pier to King Alfred, linking up to an upgraded Volks Railway to the Marina.

The Greens need to resurrect this idea and think 'big' rather than their petty small schemes. French won't like it, but a transit system all along the seafront (perhaps with large car parks in Portslade and at the Marina would solve car jams, pollution, commuter traffic, and bring in more tourists to the city.

This would probably cost £30m or so - in other words the cost of just a few more follies like Old Shoreham Road cycle motorway (or one i360). It would provide a real and lasting transit system to propel this city into the modern age!

Sadly, no one in the Green Party has the vision or inspiration for such an infrastructure project.

Definitely bring down the cost of parking because the visitors we would like to attract would be put off with such ridiculously extortionate parking fees. Develop Rock Rock into a much needed ice rink that has been much talked about for years and years. I was part of a campaign when my kids were little with Patricia Scanlon from 'Get Your Skates On' and we received thousands of signatures that proved that an ice rink would go down well here. My daughter (now older) works at the Pavilion Ice Rink in the festive season and literally thousands of people young and older go there. Fingers crossed this to be a contender (again!)
