The new Circus Street will be a place where everyone benefits, enabling people to live sustainable, green, healthier lifestyles and creating a connected community with shared goals and ideals. This will help it to grow stronger and more vital to the city over time.
Every decision has been made to create a place that will be embraced by those who live, work, use, visit and enjoy Circus Street. Carefully knitted into the surrounding urban fabric, the proposed development would draw locals into an active and engaging environment in which they feel compelled to participate and empowered to live better.
The proposed plans are for a Circus Street which welcomes the local community and is convenient with a variety of access points. The Circus Street development will also be safe, supported by Secured By Design principles of designing out crime through physical security processes and natural surveillance.
We understand that sustainability is only as good as the behaviour it encourages. As such, through the building process every person on our team will practise what they preach. Brighton & Hove has a desire to become the UK's first truly sustainable city. Circus Street would be guided by the same principles.
