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 has prepared 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 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.

On 31 May 2018 the authorities submitted the plan and all representations received during the publication stage to the Secretary of State for public examination in Summer 2018 by an independent inspector. The process has now been completed and the Inspector's Report has been received confirming the JAAP is "sound" and able to be adopted if a number of modifications are made. The adoption of the JAAP will be considered at Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee on 26 September 2019, Policy & Resources Committee on 10 October 2019 and Full Council on 24 October 2019. Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council are undertaking similar adoption processes. Once adopted the JAAP will form part of the development plan for the area, alongside the Brighton & Hove City Plan, the Adur Local Plan and waste and minerals plans.

Further information including the Inspector's Report, previous consultations and other supporting evidence is available on Adur & Worthing Council's website
