From Brighton Council …
Due to delays to the project caused by other urgent road works across the city, the works on Ann Street and Providence Place should now be completed by the end of August.
Attached is the latest newsletter with a revised programme of works. The latest time lapses showing progress are available at www.facebook.com/livelycitiesbrighton.
As previously stated, the works on the upper part of Ann Street will not be completed under the current funding scheme. The council will be doing its best to find financial resources to complete this section in the future.
On the plus side, a previously unexpected bonus of the current scheme is that free public WiFi provided by BT will be available within the project area when works complete at the end of August. This should increase the range of people who use the park and the surrounding public seating, make the area safer and help realise the objective of creating a pleasant oasis for rest and informal leisure on the edge of London Road.
The council can appreciate that everyone who lives, works or goes to school in the area have been subjected to a fair degree of disruption and we do appreciate your continued patience. We hope that you will enjoy the improvements and are able to benefit from the works when they are complete.
