Operation Otter  - An overview was given of the impact on the city centre before and during the week of the Labour Party Conference 25-29 September.

  • The Island Site will encompass the Hotel Metropole, the Grand, and the Brighton Centre
  • This year the aim is to build the bridge structure to Cannon Place overnight to minimise disruption
  • Adam Bates, Head of Tourism, met local media to emphasise that the city will be open for business as usual
  • Julian Deans, Sussex Police, asked that any suspicions be reported by e-mail to or to his colleague

24 Hour Licensing

  • Several of the seafront traders have applied for a new licence
  • Increased cost of staffing levels may make longer opening hours unworkable
  • Objections can be made to the council by 7 September

Members Day - A tourism event organised by VisitBrighton

  • Three sessions will be held on Wednesday 7 September
  • Venue: the Jubilee Library.
  • Contact Debbie Matthews at VisitBrighton, telephone: 01273 292621 or e-mail:


  • The pavement camber caused water to run off the side and down onto the Kings Road Arches
  • Seafront Office are looking into funding for guttering replacement and maintenance

West Street Subway

  • BHSTA are asking for the views of traders in the vicinity of the subway
  • Most traders want the subway open, but this may well attract the use of drug dealers again

  •  Businesses pay for the hardware - installation is free 
  • The organisation relies on sponsorship and donations
