Have your say on redevelopment of Shoreham port
10:50am Saturday 26th January 2013 in News
Redevelopments plans for one of the biggest ports in Sussex are open for public debate.
Development briefs outlining what officials want to see on three key sites near Shoreham Harbour have been drawn up by town planners.
This will help guide how the area is revamped within the coming years.
Locals are now being invited to give their views on the blueprint, which includes a wish list for homes, office space, sustainable transport and flood defences.
It also recognises the importance of Shoreham Port and the role it will play in the local economy.
Phélim MacCafferty, Brighton and Hove City Council’s deputy leader, said: “Shoreham Harbour has tremendous potential for creating new jobs and building new homes, and we have the opportunity to open up access to this part of our seafront.
“Along with our colleagues in Adur, we will set the ground rules to encourage developers to come forward with high quality plans to make the most of this site.”
The briefs cover Aldrington Basin, South Portslade Industrial Estate and the Western Harbour Arm in Shoreham.
The consultation runs until March 8. Once it has been reviewed, the development brief will be updated prior to being adopted.
Copies of it will be available in public buildings in Shoreham, Southwick, Portslade and Hove.
Exhibitions will also be held in Hove Town Hall from Monday to February 8, at Adur Civic Centre from February 11 to 22 and at the City Coast Centre in Portslade from February 25 to March 3.
