Are you happy with the way your city is developing? By taking part in the consultation on the 'local development framework' (LDF) you can have your say in how things should be done. The framework is a series of planning documents that will replace the Local Plan and shape the future look and feel of the city.
The next round of consultation begins on 27 March and you'll be able to comment on every document produced, in particular the 'Statement of Community Involvement'. Your involvement is important to ensure that new plans deliver sustainable development and reflect the kind of city in which you want to live.
The 'Statement of Community Involvement' sets out how the public will be consulted at every stage in the planning process and how the council will consider planning applications. It has just been amended to take into account public consultation that took place last autumn, but there's still time to comment.
Visit City Direct offices or libraries, or view it on the website at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/ldf
The deadline for comments is 8 May, 2006. An independent planning inspector will examine the document in the summer.
