Brighton and Hove City Council is asking for volunteers to watch how other people behave.

The council wants people to carry out some of the fieldwork on a new project to transform Ann Street and Providence Place.

The council has announced plans to transform the small park opposite |St Bartholomew’s Church into a lively, safe and successful public space.

Volunteers will receive free training on how to observe and record people using the area, which they must complete before they can go on to take part in the survey.

The two-hour workshop will take place during the week beginning September 24 in a venue near Providence Gardens.

Volunteers must commit to a minimum of four hours and maximum of 24 hours between October 1 and October 14.

Anyone interested can apply online to volunteer, end an email to or post an application to Brighton & Hove City Council, Planning Projects, Hove Town Hall room 414, Norton Road, Hove BN3 3BQ.

The closing date for applications is September 16.
