Description: This project is about bringing beauty in the Dip and Crestway areas in Hollingdean to create special places where residents enjoy walking or cycling to, where they can sit for a rest or a discussion in pleasant surroundings, and that they can be proud of when walking by to go shopping or to catch a bus.
Amongst other actions, we want to bring those changes by:
- planting trees
- growing flower beds
- installing seats, bike racks and art
- improving pedestians’ safety with zebra crossings
- decorating the Dip during the Lucky Dip markets
Led by Hollingdean residents, this project will invite community groups, shop owners, local businesses to join and work closely with Brighton & Hove City Council services, City Parks and any organisation to take part and bring expertise.
The Off The Ground initial funding would also allow us to apply for other sources of funding.
