Brighton community garden under threat
A new community garden is under threat of destruction - before it has even opened.
Months after developers moved in to take over the community-claimed plot in Lewes Road, Brighton, activists revealed they have designs on a new site.
The plot, which is next to the Earth and Stars pub in Brighton city centre, is known as The Mound and is about twice the size of the Lewes Road garden.
But their plans look to be in jeopardy already as the owners of the site, which has been vacant for 14 years, have left a notice stating they will clear the land today.
The group is now looking to protest against any action taken by Worthing-based Hargreaves Property.
Several applications to develop the land have been opposed by local residents and Brighton and Hove City Council for not being in keeping with North Laine as a conservation area.
