The vision for the city over the next two decades, as encapsulated in the Brighton & Hove Strategic Partnership’s refreshed Community Strategy, was launched by Chair Roger French and Council leader Mary Mears at the Metropole Hotel this morning. It covers every aspect of the city from the economy to health, community safety and the general well being of 250,000 citizens.
The last independent Place Survey completed in March 2009, and overseen by the Audit Commission, found that a staggering 86% of residents thought that Brighton & Hove was a good place to live. Residents also thought that the most important issues for the city are the level of crime (55%) and clean streets (49%) with most votes for what needs improving going to traffic congestion.
The new Community Strategy sets out what has been achieved over the past three years, the city’s current position and what needs to be done over the coming years to reach goals agreed by all partners in the Strategic Partnership.
