Planning permission for affordable new homes at Shoreham

Posted on 07 July 2020

Planning permission has been granted for our development of 255 affordable homes at Kingston Wharf, Shoreham-by-Sea.

Adur District Council Planning Committee granted permission on 6 July 2020 for the development on a former industrial site on the banks of the River Adur between Southwick and Shoreham, subject to completion of planning agreement.

“We are very much looking forward to work starting on this fantastic project, as part of our ongoing commitment to work closely with Adur and Worthing Councils to bring more affordable homes, and deliver real economic benefits, to the area,” said Hyde Group Chief Investment Officer Guy Slocombe.

“And thanks to our strategic partnership with Homes England, all of the homes will be affordable, available for rent or for shared ownership, meeting a range of housing needs and enabling people to get onto the housing ladder.”

The Kingston Wharf development is part of the Joint Area Action Plan for the regeneration of Shoreham Harbour. Designed by Conran and Partners, the one, two and three bedroom homes will be built in blocks of between four and eight storeys.

There will also be a new riverside walk, new flood defences and extensive landscaping, as well as provision for a planned cycle way along the A259 Brighton Road. There will be 207 car parking spaces, with just over a quarter having electric charging points, and a 155 secure cycle spaces. Our commercial partner Easistore will also be creating a new Enterprise Centre, which will include flexible office space, self-storage space, a café and a gym.
