Vision agreed for a better Brighton & Hove for all

A vision for a 'better Brighton & Hove for all' has been agreed by the council in their new Council Plan for 2023 to 2027. The plan was approved by councillors at a meeting of Full Council on Thursday 20 July. 

After the bold new vision for the city was agreed, Councillor Bella Sankey, Leader of Brighton & Hove City Council said: “I’m delighted that our 2023 to 2027 plan has been agreed and we can continue to get on with the job at hand – working towards a better Brighton & Hove for all.

“We remain determined that this council will deliver the services the city deserves, respond and listen to the needs of our residents and communities and help alleviate hardship. 

“Whether you live work, work, study, or just visiting we will strive for a city to be proud of, where everyone is included and has the opportunity to grow and thrive.

“This plan will shape the direction of our policy and services for years to come and I’m excited for the task to come in delivering our new vision.”
