Ann Street/Providence Place Gardens (Lively Cities project)

Brighton & Hove Council invites you to view proposals and vote for your favourite

Earlier this year, Brighton & Hove City Council invited proposals to transform an underused piece of open space in Brighton – Ann Street and Providence Place Gardens to make it more welcoming and attractive.

Five different possible proposals to transform the Ann Street/Providence Place Gardens area in Brighton will be unveiled to the public on Thursday, 3 May.

The shortlisted schemes were selected from 38 wide-ranging proposals from architects, designers, artists and events specialists and will be on display at St Bartholomew’s Church on 3 May (12pm to 4.30pm) and 4 May (9am-4.30pm) for people to vote on their favourites.

Other exhibition dates and venues are:

  • City College (Pelham Street reception): 9 May 2012 (9am-5pm);
  • Gazebo in Providence Place Gardens (the park in front of St Bartholomew’s Church): 11 May (9am-4pm) and 12 May (10am-4pm); and
  • Online at

The five designs are from the following practices:

  • Dallas Pierce Quintero
  • Philip Cave Associates
  • PiP Partnership
  • Plan Projects; and
  • Sustrans

Exhibition results will be reported to the Selection Panel in order to inform their choice of a winner at the end of May.

The winning design will be announced in June and given a trial run in September, with the most successful features becoming permanent fixtures.

The Ann Street / Providence Place Gardens scheme is part of the Lively Cities project, which receives financial assistance from the European Union through the INTERREG IVB programme.
