From Paula Goncalves –
The council is developing new guidance – the Urban Design Framework – to help shape buildings and spaces around the city. The aim is to make them easier to use and more attractive to people.
As the city grows we will be presented with proposals to develop and build new buildings and places. This provides the opportunity to improve existing areas as well as making sure we get usable, flexible and high quality new buildings and attractive public spaces.
To help us achieve this aim, the council wants to learn about your experience of the city to help create more welcoming buildings and public spaces through design.
Everyone in Brighton & Hove is invited to take part in a survey to share their views about the places they use and how they think these places could be improved.
All over the city there are close-to-home places that people have access to and enjoy spending time in. These can include parks, streets, squares, common areas of schools (eg playgrounds and playing fields), transport facilities and shopping areas.
Please fill in the survey at https://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/udf-places The survey is open until 13 September 2018.
The information you provide will help shape the Urban Design Framework which the council, developers and landowners will use to make sure buildings and spaces fit the needs and aspirations of everyone who lives, works, studies in and visits the city.
