A Blue Plaque for Ken Fines

A plaque was 'unveiled' in North Road this morning to commemorate Hove-born Ken Fines who in 1970 was appointed 'Director of the Greater Brighton Structure Plan'. This, occurring after his 20 years experience with the East Sussex Planning Dept., made him the right man at the right time to save the North Laine from the 1960's mania for redevelopment. He was introduced as 'Our Hero' at a talk he gave to the North Laine Community Association in 2003.
