Thriving community spirit
Hanover & Elm Grove Community Forum (HEG) supports an area of Brighton which sits on the hill to the east of the city, above the Level and Lewes Road. We are 6,500 households with a population of around 16,000 people. For the OCSI Local Insight report for the Hanover & Elm Grove area, click HERE.
The area is mostly residential – a mix of privately owned and rental properties set on a Victorian street pattern or more recently built housing estates. It really is a great place, with a thriving community spirit and lively community, and we are very much part of this. Here is a map of our area.
