The Conservative MP said that he hoped that Brighton and Hove City Council would help deal with important matters such as the Madeira Terrace arches, the lido and unauthorised traveller encampments.

Mr Kirby said: “Local residents in Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven are very concerned about these issues and I am urging the council to assist and help find a solution.”

Last weekend Mr Kirby added his voice to those calling on the council to help the Saltdean Lido CIC (Community Interest Company) to fund an electricity sub-station for the council-owned site.

Mr Raw offered to brief the MP who has long campaigned for the lido to be brought back into use.

    Those responsible for the upkeep of the seafront should be ashamed for letting the terraces rust and rot. The Hove Lagoon area is no better where the shelters and railings run red with rust. They need to be treated at least every two years instead of ten. The rust is history? Not in this city.
