1.         QUESTION From: Derek Wright


Will the council consider steam cleaning the 32 columns and 8 pillars of the Colonnade on Madeira Drive ready for when Soho house opens later this year just next door? I have a quote of £6,000 from the company that cleaned the Aquarium Terrace and balustrades for Soho House using the Doff cleaning method ,which is designed to remove paint, biological matter and general dirt and grime without causing harm or shock to the substrate and also kills of any spores. With some imagination The Colonnade could easily become Brighton’s version of Convent Garden Market.


Councillor Heley, Chair of the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee will reply.
