Launch on the corner of Albion Hill
and Belgrave Street
Tuesday 8th August
We will be around from 5pm to start our compost scheme – come along and find out more about reducing landfill waste and making compost.
People who join will get a compost caddy and the code to the compost bins.
What are the benefits of a Community Compost Scheme?
Reduce the amount of waste you sends to landfill
More space less smell – because your domestic bin is not full of useful organic matter
Recycles waste into valuable, nutrient rich compost which scheme members can have a share in. Any leftovers will be put to good use in the community.
Funded and supported by Brighton & Hove Council and Brighton & Hove Food Partnership. There are currently 30 schemes in operation across the city, composting the food waste from over 1000 households.

Road marking within Hanover & Elm Grove is set to commence on Monday 31st July 2017. A schedule of works detailing which roads are affected on which day will be available to view on the councils webpage from Monday 24th July 2017.
Additional information as to vehicle relocations and as to when households can expect to receive permit applications will also be provided. Officers are continuing to work in the area this week marking up on site in preparation of the works start date.
At the last HEGLAT meeting we discussed the way that that Hanover and Elm Grove is one of the councils pilot areas for partnership working with the community and it was agreed that a community led action plan should be explored with council support over the coming months.
A working group has been set up to work out how to identify priorities and involve as many people and local groups in the production of this action plan, and will try to meet twice over the summer and then report back with some recommendations to the wider LAT when we meet again in the autumn.
The plan would identify the local priorities and set out how the local groups, the different council services and other agencies (such as police, health, universities) will work together do to tackle these priorities. The issue of lack of council resources to achieve any desired changes was raised as an obstacle, but it was suggested that by putting some resources into this partnership between residents and the council more could be achieved within the existing resources.

Consultation on the proposed conversion of flats back into family housing at 3-22 Stonehurst Court, Brighton
Venue: The former housing office, Stonehurst Court (Located on the right hand side of Stonehurst Court)
Date: Friday 19th May Time: 3pm – 7pm
Brighton and Hove City Council is proposing to convert the nineteen one bedroom flats and a community space, at 3-22 Stonehurst Court, back into ten two bedroom semi-detached family houses with gardens. These proposed changes will include major repairs and refurbishment of the houses.
These buildings are currently in poor condition and have been underused, or used as temporary one bedroom flats. It is our intention to use these homes to meet temporary housing needs for families. This would be before they are offered permanent housing. The houses will be improved in such a way as to be suitable for future general housing use.
We are inviting you to attend a public information and ‘drop in’ session to discuss these proposals. Our intention is to allow you to look at and fully understand our proposals. Council staff will be present to answer your queries.
The proposed changes will be subject to a formal Planning Application and there will therefore be further opportunities to make comments in the next few weeks.
If you cannot attend but wish to ask for further details please contact us
Tel: 01273 294641
I look forward to meeting you if you are able to attend.
