Keep the Level a green open space
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to take account of our opposition to any structural development of the area of the Level north of the Rose Walk. We believe that a new and improved skate park should be built in the southern play area.
Brighton & Hove City Council is proposing to build a new skate park on the only remaining undeveloped green end of the Level, which is in the Valley Gardens Conservation area.

The epetition and its paper counterpart will be the subject of a debate at the Council Meeting on 21 July 2011.

Environment, Transport & Sustainability Cabinet Members Meeting

Sustainability explained that the decision on the Masterplan for
The Level had been made at the previous Cabinet Members Meeting in

Rose Walk. He stated that the council would continue to work
closely with residents and urged people to support the bid for
