Future of Brighton and Hove seafront could be up to you

The Argus: Brighton and Hove City Council wants to hear people's views about the Seafront Strategy Brighton and Hove City Council wants to hear people's views about the Seafront Strategy

The future of Brighton seafront is up for grabs and you can have your say.

A “Seafront Strategy” is being developed to improve the coastal stretch from Hove Lagoon to Saltdean.

Brighton and Hove City Council wants to hear suggestions for possible improvement to the Volk’s Electric Railway.

Council officers hope to repeat the trick of the early 1990s, when the regeneration of the area between the Palace Pier and West Pier kick-started a revival in Brighton.

Twenty years on, the aim of the seafront strategy is “to develop the unique character areas of the iconic Brighton and Hove seafront to create attractive, sustainable, high quality environments for residents, businesses and visitors throughout the year”.

Council staff are setting out to canvas opinion at exhibitions at King Alfred Leisure Centre, on February 18, at Saltdean Libarary, on February 22, at Yellowave in Madeira Drive, on February 27, and at the Fishing Museum in King’s Road Arches on March 2.

It's pretty simple really, get rid of the 1980's ferris wheel.

This made me chuckle.
I've lived on the seafront for 5 years, and the council can't seem to fix the drain on Kings Road in front of Kingsley Court, which backs up everytime it rains.
This drain drenches passers by, including tourists, ( they must get a great opinion of the city as they dodge the spray ) when cars and trucks plough through the huge puddle.
The council contact person claims its not anything to do with them, and tries to blame the water company, and despite sending drain clearing trucks once or twice, they seem totally indifferent to solving a basic but huge problem, which third world cities would have done by now.

This is what happens when basic functionality is morphed into a bureaucratic jungle by empire building 'managers'. This enables everybody to point the finger of responsibility elsewhere with the result that you have experience of "nothing happens". Some may argue that it's a great way of saving money, if you do nothing, it costs nothing however the cost of maintaining an empire that does nothing is considerable!

Bring back the excellent Dolphinarium.
Tear down and burn all the rainbow flags.
Reintroduce a tram system.
Round up all the drug addicts who cause most of the crime.

Plenty of room for improvement.

I have noticed that the “NO CYCLING” signs by Hove lagoon have been repainted yet the ones on Kings Esplanade are almost unreadable.

So one thing the council could do with any left over white marking paint that was used for the 20 mph road markings is to repaint the ones on Kings Esplanade before someone is injured by irresponsible cyclists!!!!!

Why is it that EVERY large town in Europe, nay the world, can live with cyclists and pedestrians sharing the same space.

As the council never seem to listen to any other ‘consultation’ why should we believe they would listen this time? Better to stop the waste of money on surveys and consultants and focus on the primary needs.

The reason they in Europe can live with Cyclists using the public footpaths sharing the same space is because most European cyclists are considerate and plight very much unlike British cyclists who are rood and arrogant and have no regards to other people using the same space, how many accidents are coursed by cyclists in Europe to the number in the UK, how many cyclists stop ate traffic lights in Europe compared to British cyclists who are ever dum or blind.

And in Brighton and hove most people on the seafront are boozed up and wander into the cycle lane unlike Europe.
I never use the cycle lane after breaking my collarbone when a woman let a dog out in one of those elastic leads and it bolted across the lane.

Leave it alone, why do people think that adding things automatically improve things, often the best places anywhere are the open ones with no clutter
