The city council is starting a consultation on a strategy to inform the development of eight miles of the seafront from Hove Lagoon to Saltdean taking in key landmarks and sites along the way.
The entire seafront has been divided into six zones, each considered to have unique characteristics and be suitable for different activities:
- Saldean to Roedean
- Brighton Marina to the Palace Pier
- Palace Pier to the Ellipse
- Ellipse to the Peace Statue
- Peace Statue to the King Alfred
- King Alfred to the Lagoon
The background document to be presented to next week’s Economic Development & Culture Committee [15.11.12] states,
“There is no doubt that the development of the seafront between the piers has been an outstanding success. Representatives of other British seaside resorts are envious of what has been achieved, but it is essential that continuous improvement takes place to ensure the value of the Seafront is not only maintained but enhanced for the city.”
The activity themes that have been identified in the report are:
- Active Seafront – people being active whether physically or enjoying culture.
- Seafront Management – the day to day operational of the Seafront.
- Seafront Economy – property management of the council’s property portfolio.
- Tourism Development – improving the Seafront’s tourism offer.
- Seafront Architecture and Coastal Protection – maintenance of infrastructure.
- Seafront Regeneration Projects – potential large scale development areas.
- Connectivity – access along and to the Seafront.
The consultation will last over the winter.
