A public consultation on proposals for the second phase of work to transform Littlehampton will be held in March.

According to Arun District Council, the consultation will focus on the seafront greens and promenade and links from Littlehampton town centre, ‘to provide a better connection between the town, seafront and riverside’.

This second phase will follow the design work already undertaken in the town centre.

Illustrations to show how the pedestrian route from the town centre to the seafront, the greens and riverside might look will be displayed during the three-week consultation. The designs have been shaped by workshops held last year.

The conceptual proposals have been developed by LDA Design; Landscape Architects appointed to work with the council to deliver the East Bank PublicRealm Scheme and the design plans for Littlehampton town centre.

Gillian Brown, leader of Arun District Council and cabinet member for council strategy, said: “The vision we have for revitalising these public areas will make the town more vibrant and bring new investment to Littlehampton.

“The East Bank regeneration has proved extremely popular with locals and visitors alike, and we are confident that these planned improvements to other areas of the town will also be welcomed.

“However we need the views of residents, businesses and community groups to shape our vision and to help us put together an even stronger case when we are applying for external funding. So, please join in with the consultation to make sure the scheme reflects what you would like to see in your town.”

The consultation will run from Wednesday, March 8, to Wednesday, March 29. Exhibition boards will be on display at an unmanned exhibition in the Arun Civic Centre reception.

A public exhibition will also take place on March 23-25, between 11am and 3pm, at the Look & Sea Centre, in Surrey Street, Littlehampton, where the design team be answering questions.

This design plans have been developed in order to seek the views of the public and enable the council to apply for external funding in the future. The consultation will be online at www.arun.gov.uk/regeneration-in-littlehampton from Wednesday.
