Disability Advice LogoA local web-developing wheelchair user has created a new online resource that he says will help disabled people and their friends to help each other get more out of life. Andy Stiller was inspired to create the website because of his own experience of the lack of good information and practical advice for disabled people. Read the rest of this entry »

About half the traffic collisions in the Lewes Road area are caused by “failure to look properly”. This is higher than the average for the rest of the city.  The council’s “Share the Roads, Share the Responsibility” campaign has been run a couple of times in the area – focussing on phone and MP3 player distraction. Evaluation of the campaign has shown some improvement in awareness of the risk involved in using mobiles/MP3s when crossing the road or cycling or driving.

Share The Roads advert

The council are looking to relaunch the campaign – with local radio adverts and visual images.  If you have any ideas about engaging with the community to promote the “look properly and make sure you can be seen” message to all road users – particularly the 18-35yr old population, please contact:

Hollingdean Skate Park planIt’s been a long time coming but at last the new skate park in Hollingdean Park, Lynchet Close, is happening! The contract has been awarded to Bendcrete.

Last week some of the skaters met with them to approve final changes, although there is very little change from the original design.

Bendcrete will liaise with the skaters throughout the build which starts on 8th May. It is expected to take approximately 6 weeks to build. The official opening will be at T in the Park on Sunday 1st July – so get the date in your diary.

The Level restoration projectBrighton & Hove is celebrating as the city council’s bid for a £2.2 million Lottery grant to restore The Level has been granted.  The money comes from the Funds’ joint Parks for People scheme.  More information on the council’s website.

As part of the overall restoration of The Level, Freestyle Skateparks have been appointed to design and build the new skatepark and work will now start on the design. Skaters and local residents will have an opportunity to feed into the process.

Once a design has been developed, the project team will work with the Brighton & Hove Skateparks Association to prepare funding bid applications to raise the additional funding required to build the skatepark. More details about the timescales and the consultation and engagement process for The Level Skatepark will follow shortly.
