Shoreham Harbour Regeneration

Shoreham Harbour Regeneration is a partnership of Brighton & Hove City Council, Adur & Worthing Council, West Sussex County Council and Shoreham Port Authority. The partnership is working on a joint project and preparing a Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) to facilitate the regeneration of Shoreham Harbour and surrounding areas.  

Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP)

The Shoreham Harbour JAAP is becoming a key planning document and will form part of the development plan for Brighton & Hove and Adur.  It provides the framework and guidelines for developers and clarifies the land to be regenerated, as well as what kind of development is acceptable in the area. 

Following the publication of the Proposed Submission Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan the authorities intend to submit the plan to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for public examination in Spring/Summer 2018.  All representations received during the publication stage will be submitted to the Secretary of State and considered as part of a public examination of the 'soundness' and 'legal compliance' of the Plan by an independent Planning Inspector.  It is anticipated the Plan will be formally adopted early 2009.  Once adopted the JAAP will sit alongside the Brighton & Hove City Plan and the Adur Local Plan.

Proposed Submission Shoreham Harbour JAAP - Publication Stage

Brighton & Hove City Council, Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council prepared for publication the Proposed Submission Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) - in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012. This was subject to public consultation for six weeks from 10 November 2017 to 22 December 2017 (12 midnight) to allow for representations to be made on its 'soundness' and 'legal compliance'.
