Belgrave Street poster


Ian in Belgrave Street has made this striking poster to encourage his neighbours to vote in the consultation. You can download a copy of the Belgrave Street poster as a PDF here.

The text on the back reads:

Please consider the following:

  • Your vote counts – each household has one vote whether or not you have a car. The CPZ consultation affects everyone who lives here. Vote if you walk to school, use a bus, bike or pram, have mobility problems or can’t find a
    space to park.
  • Most people locally don’t have a car – far more journeys are made on foot, by bike or by bus.
  • Cars have a negative impact on the environment locally and globally. Better planning helps create a more pleasant and healthier city.
  • Households with cars will find it easier to park

If you want to help or find out more please:

  • visit Hanover Streets for People ( and comment with your images of your street and what you think it could be like
  • display this poster or better still design one yourself – Children’s posters especially effective
  • post positive messages on social media to encourage people to vote

Feel free to share this image on social media, or print it out to use as a window poster or leaflet for your street.

  1. Please say no to controlled parking in Hanover. The main issue for my house, and there must be many others in the same position, is that there is no guarantee of a second permit per household. My housemate and I a both self employed and NEED a vehicle each. There’s no way around it, if we couldn’t park here, we would have to move away from a life we’ve established for ourselves here at great expense, upheaval and stress because as our situation stands it’s going to be very difficult to find somewhere else to fulfil all our needs. An argument for the scheme suggests it is to guarantee residents a space to combat the struggle of spending ages finding one and parking far away occasionally, well a huge reduction in spaces is simply NOT going to achieve that. People will face the same parking problem whilst this time paying for the privilege. Don’t forget, as the council leaflet admits itself, the problem is due to the parking schemes in surrounding areas in the first place. The council have created a problem and expect us to pay and suffer for it. Walk around queen’s park, there’s loads of houses with driveways and yet there’s controlled parking bays with hardly and cars in! They have forced more cars into Hanover. You only have to go out at night to realise that the cars parked here ARE mostly from residents, people parking for work would have gone and it’s still busy. Even so, many people won’t be able to commute to Brighton anymore. If there were less parking schemes, Hanover wouldn’t have to bare the brunt of the issue. I can’t even afford yet another tax on my life, I already pay my road tax to park on the road. The visitor’s permit scheme is unbelievable. It effectively is restricting our freedom, telling us how many visits we’re allowed per year. We all work very hard for our livings, to have freedom and to pay for a house with which we can do as we please and now all of a sudden I have to share 50 visits with my housemate every year? So I’m allowed a visitor for one day less than once every other week. Well no, that’s simply not on! What about those with partner’s who visit regularly or close friends and family that stay a lot? This will affect people’s relationships and the way they live their lives. For residents without cars who feel that the roads would also look nicer without as many cars on, maybe they would, but is that really as important an issue as other people not actually being able to live here and uproot their entire life? As people struggling to pay the bills being given another annual expense to not even get a space anyway? To having the council dictate how many times you’re allowed to have friends and family visit you? I’ve heard people say they want the roads for the community back. I’m sorry but Brighton has an abundance of parks and other areas for community gatherings, the curb isn’t the place to be socialising anyway. You show a picture of a street party as argument for this. I’m more than happy to park a walk away for these events every so often but if new restrictions come in, people like me won’t be able to live here to attend such events anyway

  2. My recent leaflet campaign against the scheme is based on a number of factors. 20 streets will have a reduction in parking, the scheme is expensive as national average is £64.00, normal car would be £130.00, Current problems during the day are down to council failing to provide affordable alternative parking to either visitors to or workers in the local area. If the old Amex building being demolished were to become a car park, local problems would be much reduced.
