Having disregarded the results of its own public consultation about
plans for the city centre, Brighton & Hove Council has now advertised its notice to make Ship Street one way.
Given that their final proposal was not included in their public consultation, you may not have seen the detail of this before so this is what the notice says:
"The effects will be to introduce a southbound traffic flow in Ship Street, between North Street and Duke Street, introduce loading bays and/or associated loading restrictions in North Street and parts of Ship Street and Western Road, remove the taxi rank in North Street and introduce a shared taxi rank and loading bay in Castle Square…"
A copy of the proposed Orders, plan showing the roads affected, copies of the Orders to be amended, Road Hump Notice and a statement of the City Council’s reasons for proposing to make the Order may be examined at the City Direct centres situated at Bartholomew House, Bartholomew Square, Brighton, between 9.00am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday and at Hove Town Hall, Norton Road, Hove, 8.45am – 4.30pm Brighton Jubilee Library, Jubilee Street Monday – Tuesday 10.00am – 7.00pm,Wednesday 10.00am – 5.00pm, Thursday 10.00am – 8.00pm, Friday 10.00am – 5.00pm and Saturday
10.00am – 4.00pm and Hove Central Library, Church Road, Tuesday 9.30am – 7.30pm, Wednesday – Friday 9.30am – 5.30pm, Saturday 9.30am – 5.00pm, closed Mondays.
