Extra funding for City Parks

In the current year BHCC will be diverting almost £102,000 from a general budget underspend to parks and open spaces.

£82,000 will be spent on the play facilities in Victoria Recreation Ground, Hangleton Park, Dyke Road park and replacement or repair to surfacing and new gates at a number of play areas.

A further £20,000 has been allocated for planting in the Green Flag parks Easthill Memorial Garden, Preston Park, The Level, Stoneham Park, Kipling Gardens, St Ann’s Well Gardens and Hove Park, as well as improving bins in the city centre parks and signage in Kipling Gardens.

The council has also increased security in city centre parks where there has been antisocial behaviour, currently targeting Norfolk Square, St Nicholas Rest Garden, Dorset gardens, The Level and Queens Park.
