A senior member of the new ruling Labour group has called for an urgent meeting over the closure of the Madeira Terraces on Brighton seafront.

Councillor Gill Mitchell, deputy leader of the Labour group on Brighton and Hove City Council, is raising the issue after local businesses voiced their concerns.

She has called for an urgent meeting with senior council officers to address business owners’ concerns.

TerracesCouncillor Mitchell said: “I have been approached by a number of business owners who have expressed their concerns over the effects of the closure of Madeira Terraces and the closure of parking spaces.

“I have called for an urgent meeting with senior council officers to discuss any ways in which we can minimise the impact of the closure on local businesses.

“I will be looking at a wide range of options, including temporarily lowering parking fees.”

Councillor Mitchell chaired the council’s cross-party Seafront Scrutiny Panel which reported last October.

    Hilarious that Mitchell and Labour are now interested in the Madeira Terraces as both they and the Tories have allowed them to slowly disintegrate for the last 50 years or so – yet further proof that both of those ‘parties’ have let residents of Brighton and Hove down for years!!
