We the undersigned petition Brighton and Hove City Council to pause design work on the Old Steine road plans and enter into full open consultation with all interested parties to seek a solution that is beneficial to all.
Why is this important?
We are concerned that the current Old Steine road plans may increase congestion resulting in greater pollution and deterioration of air quality. We are concerned journey times and travel distances will increase and cause vehicle displacement. We are concerned of the potential negative impact to our tourist economy, businesses generally and our outdoor live events.
We all agree that investment in the Old Steine area will positively impact the city. By working with all interested parties, we believe that better solutions are achievable, enhancing accessibility for the less able and further improving provision for cycling and walking and greater use of public transport.
