Brighton street set for revamp after trial success
8:50am Wednesday 20th February 2013 in News
A street is set to be revamped after the success of an open air common room.
Picnic tables, table tennis tables and artificial turf were all used to create the space in Providence Place and Ann Street in Brighton last year.
Brighton and Hove City Council, which led on the scheme with European funding, has now decided the trial was a success.
It will now look at ways it can work with the community to transform the area over the long-term as part of wider plans to revamp the London Road area.
Philip Wells, chairman of the London Road Area Local Action Team, said: “I hope this venture will be one of the ongoing private, public and community initiatives which will combine to make London Road a more and more successful place.
“London Road is on the up.”
Deputy council leader Phélim MacCafferty said: “We have been successful in securing a fair amount of funding for the initial stages of a permanent scheme and we hope that this will help to attract further investment, not just to this particular project, but also to the wider area within and around London Road.”
