Residents Parking Scheme: 1st July
The Area J residents' parking
scheme is due to operate in Round Hill from Monday 1st July 2013
All addresses within the proposed scheme should have received details of the scheme and the permit application form. Residents who received the first batch may have noticed an error on Part 3 of the application form. It mistakenly asks us to apply for a permit within "Area C" extension. The form can still be used, but cross out "C" and write "J". Notification is being staggered and the mistake will probably be corrected in later mailshots.
Planning decisions affecting Round Hill Richmond House
proposal has been unanimously REFUSED.
for 6 three-storey houses GRANTED. 8 in favour, 1 (ward Cllr Ian Davey) against, 1 (Cllr Jones) abstention. The permission is subject to a condition that prospective residents will not be entitled to apply for parking permits. No mention was made of the two pre-conditions for genuine car-free housing and past planning inspectors' doubts that such a condition could be secured over the long term.

Our help and services for older residents page is intended for both the over 50s and residents of any age-group who support older people wishing to remain in their homes. The purpose of Brighton & Hove's Older People's Council is to ensure that (i) the contribution of all older people in our city is acknowledged and valued, (ii) all older people in Brighton & Hove are treated with respect and dignity and have access to services, support and opportunity to lead a fulfilling life.
If you are looking for activities for children, a good external link is www.childfriendlybrighton.co.uk where you can find a good page on child-friendly activities planned for The Level. Families who like the outdoors can help to maintain their local woodland by volunteering for Friends of Hollingbury & Bursted Woods monthly Sat/Sun sessions. FHBW now have a Facebook Page publicising woodland related events.
