Craven Vale


The first in a series of short films about Craven Vale Allotment Site, on the eastern edge of Brighton, UK. These films will capture peoples’ stories of growing, and the value they attach to green spaces on the urban fringe.
The site has been identified as potential development land for housing, in the Urban Fringe Assessment for Brighton’s City Plan. There will now be an extended consultation process during which we will continue filming.

City plans are part of the government’s national planning framework; ostensibly about local control, the framework effectively gives central government more power over local planning decisions.
