From Ted Power, The Round Hill Society
I should like to thank Southdown Rise Residents Association, individuals and Councillors from your ward who supported the nomination I made two years ago for SHAFTESBURY PLACE, LONDON ROAD STATION BRIGHTON to be added to our city’s Local List of Heritage Assets.
The good news is that we have succeeded. From 2015 SHAFTESBURY PLACE, LONDON ROAD STATION BRIGHTON has been included in the local list, as confirmed here.
It would be misleading to give the impression that a local listing offers as much protection against ‘unsuitable planning’ as a national listing, but getting our Local Council to value the station and its setting formally is at least a start.
With best wishes,
