Nominations for Centenary Fields Programme

Decision Maker: Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Royal British Legion and Fields in Trust (formerly the National Playing Fields Association) are leading a nationwide initiative aimed at securing recreational spaces in perpetuity in honour of the memory of the millions of people who lost their lives in World War I.  The programme is encouraging every local authority to nominate at least one site to be dedicated as a Centenary Field.

At Full Council on 17 July 2014 a Notice of Motion was carried seeking a report to be brought to this meeting with a view to nominating specific sites in Brighton and Hove.  This report summarises the objectives of the Centenary Fields Programme and recommends proceeding with the nomination of three sites as Centenary Fields.



1)           That Committee delegates officers to proceed with the application for four sites (The Chattri, Old Steine Gardens, East Hill Park and Patcham Peace Garden) to be dedicated as Centenary Fields.


2)           That Committee delegates officers the authority to complete the relevant deeds of dedication to protect the sites in perpetuity, subject to the sites meeting the criteria
