Businesses in Coastal West Sussex are being encouraged to share their views on plans for the regeneration of Shoreham Harbour. It follows publication of the draft Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) which sets out a 15-20 year vision to guide the regeneration of the Harbour and surrounding area. Between 17th February and 25th April 2014, Shoreham Harbour Regeneration is holding ten weeks of public consultation.

The plan covers a large area stretching from the Shoreham Footbridge in the west through to Hove Lagoon in the east and taking in the neighbouring residential communities of Shoreham, Southwick, Fishersgate, Portslade and West Hove. It was produced jointly by Brighton & Hove City Council, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council.

The vision is to maximise the potential of Shoreham Harbour for the benefit of existing and new residents, businesses, port-users and visitors. The plan includes proposals for around 1,450 homes, new employment space and upgraded flood defences.

It also proposes improvements to the local transport network, upgrades to public spaces, preservation of historic features, new and improved social and community facilities, along with new marine and leisure facilities.
