Thanks to a new, cross-agency partnership, Haddington Street in central Hove will be purged of graffiti and given a new lease of life.
The Central Hove Local Action Team or LAT, brings together local residents, businesses, police and councillors to tackle problems with anti-social behaviour and crime. In doing so, the aim is to make Hove a better place to live, visit and work in. On Monday 13th of October 2008, Brighton and Hove City Council along with Brighton and Hove Police will be clearing the street of rubbish, removing as much graffiti as possible and smartening the area up. The ‘clean-up’ of the street is part of the ‘Not In My Neighbourhood’ week, occurring across the whole city.
Local businesses and residents are being asked to join in, Central Hove PCSO Ross Alderton says, “Please join us on the day, if only for a few minutes, to improve the street. We hope the day will encourage people to enjoy their experience when visiting, living or working in Hove. The council will provide paint and brushes and the press will be attending, so it’s a great opportunity to showcase your business.”
Gavin Stewart, Hove Town Centre Manager and Chair of the Hove LAT said, “This is a great example of the community coming together for positive change. The clean up of Haddington Street is one of the first priorities set by the Local Action Team and it’s great to see so much enthusiasm from local partners to get involved and smarten up our city for good.”
