On 16 March councillors at the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee welcomed the progress made with taking forward the pilot. It will be co-designed with local residents and councillors will review a further report in the autumn.

Councillors agreed to allocate initial funding of £300,000 from the Local Transport Plan capital programme for this first stage of the project. It will include engaging with residents and businesses, testing different options and research.

A report with preferred options, delivery plan and detailed design created with help of community will be presented to the committee in late autumn 2021.

The pilot may be introduced in a number of phases to allow for periods of monitoring.

Measures will be put in place using Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders (ETROs). Residents and businesses will be involved in designing these measures but will also be able to give their views and experiences when the ETROs are in place so that they can be changed.

Once in place, the pilot scheme will be used to help inform the medium to longer-term strategy for delivery of low traffic neighbourhoods across Brighton & Hove.
