We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to 1. Prepare plans for alternative sites for the relocation of the bins and submit them for consultation to: a) Coldean Residents' Association b) Coldean Community Organisation c) Coldean Neighbourhood Planning Forum 2. Re-locate the bins.

The current location is within 15 metres of people eating in the licensed beer garden of The Ruby (Public House). They are an eyesore at the entrance to Coldean village. There is observational evidence that most users of these bins are from non-residents of Coldean.
