A meeting discussing a £40 million redevelopment has been delayed due to “incredible” public interest.

Arun District Council’s Bognor Regis Regeneration Subcommittee was due to discuss the St Modwen scheme for the town centre on February 5.

However, to allow more time to consider all the responses, the council has rescheduled this for February 26 at 6pm in the John Parry Centre at the University of Chichester’s Bognor campus.

The local authority added this will not affect the overall timings of the scheme.
