THE CONNECTED CITY
A SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY FOR BRIGHTON & HOVE

What we plan to do

  • Use the planning system to provide development that reduces the need to travel and prioritises sustainable transport options
  • Increase job opportunities to increase choice and enable local people to work within the city
  • Ensure provision and promotion of opportunities for home/local working, flexible planning, use of new technology etc to provide choice not to travel, eg online meeting spaces.
  • Require sustainable travel plans for all major developments
  • Implement measures to promote and change travel habits / decisions to transfer people and goods onto more sustainable transport
  • Prepare new guidance on parking and servicing requirements for new developments that will put a priority on minimising off-street parking provision where appropriate
  • Increase amount of secure cycle parking at key destinations
  • Create complete cycle networks and routes as part of Travel Plans
  • Manage public city centre parking in a way that complements, and is integrated with, other wider policy objectives¬†¬†
