Councils vow to revive Shoreham Harbour plans

First published in News by

Three councils behind the regeneration of Shoreham Harbour have vowed to get the project off the ground despite funding difficulties.

Brighton and Hove City Council, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council have formed a committee, together with the Shoreham Port Authority, to create a new project out of the ashes of the original 10,000 homes scheme.

In July, quangos the Homes and Communities Agency and Seeda pulled funding for the Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) – a planning blueprint for the area - because of budget cuts.

Councillor Parkin said the aim was still to provide new jobs and homes for the area.

Speaking at a meeting of the Shoreham Society this week, Peter Latham, strategic director of Adur District and Worthing Borough Councils admitted there were still hurdles – although he was keen to stress they were not insurmountable.

A £5million Government grant will be spent on improving the A259.
