@sfca_info @varndean @BHASVIC @ucu

... But want to highlight campaign standing up for young people & BTECs - colleges in #Brighton & #Hove point to the success of BTECs & worry that removing funding for the majority of BTEC qualifications would be a serious and harmful mistake not least because disadvantaged

Young people are amongst those with the most to lose – as the Government’s own equalities impact assessment makes clear, stating:

“those from SEND backgrounds, Asian ethnic groups, disadvantaged backgrounds, and males [are] disproportionately likely to be affected”

How much new money from external sources was raised in 2021 for the restoration of Madeira Terraces - and which grants, HNWs and other funding
pots will the council be targeting in 2022? asks @bridgetbythesea #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
There was a bid from the Levelling Up fund and potential for further bids from the same fund this year. Also bids to Heritage Lottery. @MartinOsborne_ has no number at the moment #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
After submitting a question nearly a week ago @bridgetbythesea is disappointed there is no figure.

Restoring the terraces has always been about money. There is a funding gap. When will a professional fundraiser be appointed? #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove

#Brighton’s Clock Tower is the third-worst location in
England for Nitrogen Dioxide this is absolutely vital. Less short journeys in cars would be
good for those who have no choice but to drive, like essential workers, tradespeople, delivery
drivers and those with disabilities.
It will also make a huge difference to families, who are facing the worst cost of living crisis since the 1980s. @DivideClass wants #Brighton and #Hove City Council to:
1. Commit to providing free bus travel policy for all residents under 17 by April 2023. #LDreorter

@Phelimmac says the ideas of public engagement is to keep council open. Meetings are still open #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
Covid is not weakening or the pandemic over is mistake says @Phelimmac We do not know when covid is behind us. We have a civic duty to ensure the health and safety for everyone. We should have the legislation to keep meeting remotely but cannot anymore #LDreporter

In light of the latest delays to the restoration of Madeira Terrace, Does the council believe that Madeira Drives' primary purpose is that of a car park and should lost revenue from spaces be allowed to delay the redevelopment of the Terrace any further? asks Alan Tower
The council is committed to Madeira Terraces says @MartinOsborne_ A public consultation took place late last year and is moving forward. Parking revenue is vital to the council's funding and worth £10million for bus services. #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
Parking is being removed but it is a long process says @MartinOsborne_ A full update is going to the Madeira Terrace advisory panel. Getting rid of parking spaces would go to Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove

Now we have removal of conditions on the development at Coldean Lane. There are late representations on removing trees at the entrance and for a foul water pipe #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
Cars would not be able to enter the site by making a right turn.

A further 19 trees in addition to the 43 trees removed from the site, are recommended to go. Some of the trees are diseased. #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
13 of the trees will go to make way for the drain and the changes to the entrance if councillors agree. Loss of the trees is "regrettable" but 200 more trees will be planted #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove

First up Lewes Road flats #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove
Carol Theobald thinks the development provides low-cost housing. @MCQ_cellos welcomes the 100% affordable housing. Both say it is a huge improvement on what is there.
It'll be great to have 100% affordable says @ShanksSue It's a busy transport corridor, or road, says @danieljyates He is disappointed at the lack of a mix but understands why one-bedrooms are better at this site with support #LDreporter #Brighton #Hove

“Cities contribute 70% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and 21% of these come from urban transport alone. Shifting to walking and cycling can drastically reduce emissions and is the quickest and most efficient way to decarbonize transport.”
So that’s #Brighton & #Hove then
“High rates of active mobility lead to greater connectivity, reduced traffic and parking congestion, more reliable travel times and increased public transit ridership.”
That should be #Brighton & #Hove
“Active mobility has immense untapped potential and, when fostered through safe infrastructure, brings numerous economic, environmental, health and social benefits to the community.”
Yes, that’d be good for #Brighton & #Hove
