Brighton & Hove Traffic/Cycle Monitoring Data

Brighton & Hove City Council records the amount of traffic at key points around the city. This is done using automatic traffic counters, which are sensors built into the road and trigger when a vehicle (or bicycle) passes by. This information is used to monitor yearly trends and seasonal variation, and the traffic count data is made freely available to the public.

Local Transport Plan (LTP)

The Local Transport Plan 4 Document (LTP4) was approved by the city council in March 2015 and sets out the priorities, projects and programmes that need to be progressed in the future to help people move around the city more safely, sustainably, and easily.

Brighton & Hove’s Public Realm Strategy aims to establish a co-ordinated, consistent and high quality approach to all work in the public realm, including the streetscape. The overall objective is to ensure the city’s streets and public spaces are designed to bring maximum benefit to all residents.
