The Mayor gave the following communications:


“Before I move on to the items as listed on the Agenda, I have two important matters to raise.


The first is to recognise the sad death of former Councillor and Mayor Brian Fitch. Brian Fitch was a long serving Labour Councillor on both Brighton Council and Brighton & Hove City Council. His political career spanned an incredible 40 years. He was a much respected former Mayor of Brighton and Mayor of Brighton & Hove, as well as an honorary Alderman of the City.


Our thoughts are with Brian’s family and friends and I would like us to stand and hold a minute’s since as a mark of respect and thanks for his long service to this City.

Thank you.


You will all be aware of the fantastic achievement of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club this season, with them securing a slot in the Europa League next season, with another fantastic performance last night. This is a historic first for the club and also for the city.


The Albion has grown to become one of the top employers in the city and one of the most significant contributors to the economic growth of the area.


The global reach of the Premier league helps strengthen the city’s international profile and helps us to attract more visitors, who support our local businesses and help the city maintain its position as one of the most popular visitor destinations in the UK.


On behalf of the Council, my congratulations to the Albion for their incredible achievement. I understand that an appropriate civic event is being arranged to mark their success.”
