Agenda Item 62(b)



Brighton & Hove City Council





A period of not more than fifteen minutes shall be allowed at each ordinary meeting for questions submitted by a member of the public.


The question will be answered without discussion. The person who asked the question may ask one relevant supplementary question, which shall be put and answered without discussion. The person to whom a question, or supplementary question, has been put may decline to answer it. 


The following written questions have been received from members of the public:



(1)          Saltdean skatepark bins – Rose Miller


Please can we have new bins in the skateboard park (currently none in the near vicinity and the rubbish is terrible on a daily basis), in the centre of the park where the path crosses and a new bit to replace the recently removed dog bin to the South East?


(2)          New England Road- Adrian Hart


If I cycle underneath the bridge on New England Road my breathing often worsens.  The covered area is long, traffic congested involving hill starts and queuing which causes emissions build up and pollution to linger.  I’ve been told it won’t be monitored despite it harming the health of those walking and cycling.  Can we solve this problem by either bringing in a ZEZ like London’s Beech Street, close the road when pollution is high, make it eastbound only with a yellow box, add advisory signs for pedestrians or cyclists as in Stoke on Trent or close it to motor vehicles?
