The Seven Dials

Brighton & Hove City Council is looking at how to make improvements around one of the city’s most unwelcoming junctions at Seven Dials, improve road safety and make the area easier to get around.

Residents, business people and visitors to the area are invited to take part in a workshop next Tuesday, 26 June at St Nicholas Church in Dyke Road, which is being held between 3pm and 7pm. Simply register your details to travel.planning@brighton-hove.gov.uk or call 01273 290487.

Seven Dials is a major road junction to the northwest of the city centre. It has seven roads that radiate outwards from a roundabout, including the busy Dyke Road. There have been 41 accidents in the area* since 2007, nine of them serious.

The aim of the workshop is to:

  • take a look at Seven Dials
  • put together objectives for a design brief
  • agree up to five representatives to work closely with the council to develop the design brief and final designs ready for public consultation

The council would also like to find out what people see as the big issues at Seven Dials and the three top things they would like to change.

* Statistics cover an area approximately 100 metres radius from the centre of Seven Dials

Some years ago there were embryonic plans to revert to a large central island with a specially commissioned public art work in the centre. I wonder what happened to those?
