The neighbouring Brunswick Town Association has created a petition to stop the Council imposing communal bins in Brunswick Square, Terrace and public gardens, so that this unique Regency square, terrace and public garden can continue to be enjoyed by everyone.
Brighton & Hove City Council proposes to ruin Brunswick Square and Terrace with large communal bins. This is in stark contrast to their earlier assertion that this Grade I Listed setting is a ‘jewel in the crown’ and a significant protected area, enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. The Council would be going against planning guidance; ignoring its duty to conserve and enhance the area and undermining heritage improvements paid for with public money. There are no appropriate areas to place communal bins, given the compactness of the area, blind corners and conservation status of the buildings and railings. The Council has insufficient resources to maintain the bins and as seen across all areas of the city, there would be extensive fly tipping, fly posting and graffiti.
Please support the petition to stop the Council imposing communal bins, so that this unique Regency square, terrace and public garden can continue to be enjoyed by everyone.
