Whitehawk Inn

A COMMUNITY centre that supports vulnerable people in one of the most deprived parts of the city could be forced to close. The Whitehawk Inn provides adult education classes, support and advice for people living in east Brighton. But the centre, owned by Brighton Housing Trust, looks set to close at the end of March because the charity can no longer afford to run it. Residents and service users said they were saddened by the end of a vital amenity in Whitehawk. Read More

During 2012 Brighton and Hove city council announced that it would be running two pilots to examine the potential benefits of more localised decision making. Serendipity (SES) was providing Community Development support to the Whitehawk, Manor Farm and Bristol Estates and with the encouragement of community activists applied to be one of the pilot areas. This bid was successful.

The Neighbourhood Governance Pilots ran from October 2012 until December 2013 and were held in two areas of the city one being a Political Ward - Holingdean - the other being the grouping of three estates - Whitehawk, Manor Farm, and Bristol Estate now collectively known as DueEast.
