Keep the Level a green open space

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to take account of our opposition to any structural development of the area of the Level north of the Rose Walk. We believe that a new and improved skate park should be built in the southern play area.

Brighton & Hove City Council is proposing to build a new skate park on the only remaining undeveloped green end of the Level, which is in the Valley Gardens Conservation area.

Plans to move the location of the skate park to the open, green area contravene the spirit of an iconic community resource that should be preserved from development as a place for congregating, holding community events, festivals and fairs.

The epetition and its paper counterpart will be the subject of a debate at the Council Meeting on 21 July 2011.

This ePetition ran from 24/09/2010 to 07/07/2011 and has now finished.

298 people signed this ePetition.

Council response

The petition was referred from Councilon 21 July 2011 to the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Cabinet Members Meeting on 4 October 2011 where the Cabinet Member for Environment & Sustainability explained that the decision on the Masterplan for The Level had been made at the previous Cabinet Members Meeting in July. He reported that the bid had subsequently been submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund and that a response was anticipated in January 2012. He acknowledged the ongoing concerns of some residents in relation to the location of the skate park, but stated that the decision had been taken on the basis on the consultation results, which indicated a clear preference to move it north of the Rose Walk. He stated that the council would continue to work closely with residents and urged people to support the bid for funding.
