Pedestrianise St James Street
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to pedestrianise or part-pedestrianise St James Street to create a more welcoming public space that is traffic-free, cleaner and safer.
Over the years residents, businesses and visitors have raised
concerns that St James Street has become a dirty, unsafe and
unwelcoming area of Brighton with a bad reputation.
St James Street traders and MPs in the past have called on the Council to look at an option to pedestrianise the street, this has not been achieved. Making the street traffic-free would create more of a 'cafe-culture', and enhance the appearance of the street.
A traffic-free street would also facilitate the creation of permanent art installations associated with the community like the recently suggested Rainbow Crossing' or a Rainbow Road like the one created in Iceland.
Closure of the street would also facilitate events like the annual Pride Street Party.
Brighton City Council please consider implementing a proper consultation to see if this is a possibility.
