Re-developing the Adur Civic Centre

Posted on 11 January 2022

We've agreed with Adur and Worthing District Council Planning Authority to postpone our intended planning committee hearing on 18 January 2022 for the Adur Civic Centre site.

This was when a decision was due to be made on the proposed redevelopment to provide much-needed new affordable homes.

Andy Hunt, Associate Director of Land and Planning at Hyde, said: “We've decided to take another look at our designs to make sure we have the best possible scheme for the community.

“As a not-for-profit housing association, this scheme is very important to us. We know more affordable homes are desperately needed in Shoreham-by-Sea. Our intention is to help local people stay in the area through a range of affordable home ownership options – all fully-funded through our strategic partnership with Homes England".

The current proposals will create affordable new homes with commercial facilities, electric vehicle charging points, as well as extensive new landscaping, including planting semi mature trees along the Brighton Road, creating a green link to the Ham Road park.

We previously ran a public consultation with local residents, neighbours and other interested parties in March 2020 to discuss the scheme and where possible, incorporated the feedback into the final designs.
