Who to contact about benches

Cityclean, the team who look after recycling, rubbish and streets, look after benches on, or by, pavements.

Our parks team, Cityparks, look after benches in parks.

Tell us about a problem with a bench and we'll tell the relevant team.

Please report anti-social behaviour around benches, if you see it. 

Dedicate a bench

You can adopt an existing bench in the city, with a new plaque, for £133 including VAT.

If you want to adopt a new bench, with a plaque and one year's maintenance, it will cost £1044 including VAT.

All new benches are based on a design first used in Preston Park in 1883. 

We can no longer install new benches at Preston Park or The Level, but you can adopt an existing one.

We can't give new or adopted benches in Hove Park, St Ann's Well Gardens, Pavilion Gardens and along the Brighton & Hove seafront.

Find out how to dedicate a bench. This process can take up to four months to complete.
