Our City Downland Estate is a valuable asset for Brighton & Hove. It is an influential and important part of the lives of all of our residents. Your opinion, knowledge and ideas are extremely important to us so we can produce an inclusive, well informed City Downland Estate Plan.

We have created a two stage process. This will help us both collect your ideas and opinions, and work with you to shape these ideas and opinions into proposals. We will put these forward for consideration in the City Downland Estate Plan. 

This has been created in partnership with Planning For Real who are specialists in effective community engagement.
