"For the first time ever in the UK, a fully Green city plan, based on Green values, has come into effect.

The detailed City Plan, which outlines how the city’s homes, jobs and open spaces will develop for the next generation, based on ‘One Planet Living’ principles, was passed last week by Brighton & Hove City Council, having been proposed by the Green administration and supported by Labour. The Conservatives abstained.

Among the proposals, which set out how the city’s land will be used between now and 2030, are:

New measures to secure more affordable housing in developments.
An emphasis on sustainable travel arrangements for residents in new developments.
A guarantee that should the private area of land known as 'Toad's Hole Valley' be developed by its owners, it is done to the highest sustainability standards, providing a balance of homes, work space, business facilities, schooling and publicly accessible open space. Around 1,500 jobs, plus training and apprenticeship opportunities, will be created during the lifetime of the Toad's Hole Valley regeneration project.
More stringent sustainability standards and enhanced protection for the South Downs National Park.
Deputy Leader of the Council, Councillor Phélim Mac Cafferty stated, "After more than a year’s work, the Green administration has brought its vision for the future of Brighton & Hove to council and has seen it accepted as council policy.

"It’s a blueprint for the city that will last for a generation, setting out how to sustain our unique environment while providing desperately needed new homes, schools, jobs and other opportunities, at the same time protecting public and open spaces from inappropriate development.

"Based on the Green principles of One Planet Living, it’s a robust, practical and visionary plan: a long-term future for our city that could only come about with the Greens in administration."
