Residents to set local priorities as 86-home development starts in Whitehawk

Residents will have the opportunity to make a difference to their local community on Thursday 4 June at the Valley Social Club on Whitehawk Way. 

Due East Neighbourhood Council, which represents communities in East Brighton, is holding a workshop between 10am and 12 midday where everyone is welcome to set priorities for Whitehawk and help put together an action plan following residents’ participation in Brighton & Hove City Council’s ‘Planning for Real’ consultation in March.

Councillor Anne Meadows, the new chair of housing for the council, said:

“We already have a thriving group of local residents who are keen to see their ideas for improvements come to life.  Many of them became involved after visiting the Whitehawk Hub to see the impressive large scale 3D model of Whitehawk estate which showed the council’s proposals for 86 new homes at Findon Road and the Wellsbourne site in Whitehawk.  Residents were also asked to place suggestion cards on the model to pin point their priority areas for improvement and change in the neighbourhood – all really valuable material that will inform this follow up workshop in June.”

Due East is taking forward residents’ priorities for community issues and Chris El Shabba, resident of Robert Lodge and Chair of Due East Neighbourhood Council, looks forward to welcoming local residents at the workshop.
