Brighton Council is planning to introduce a FOGO service in 2021 and is seeking residents’ and ratepayers’ thoughts before proceeding.  We are very interested in your views.

Council is developing improvement plans for Andrew Street to further enhance connectivity across the local community as well as to provide a gateway to the township of Brighton from the east. The project will include flood mitigation works and streetscape beautification, whilst providing safer access for sustainable transport modes to schools, parks and businesses in Brighton’s south and east.
The draft plans show a range of ideas to improve the ‘look and feel’ of the street (6 plans cover the ideas for the length of Andrew Street). These ideas are intended to help improve access, facilities, amenity and safety.
