The site

This site lies at the heart of Worthing’s civic hub set within a leafy area on the edge of the main shopping precincts. The site has few constraints with potential to consolidate and rationalise existing public sector functions set around the existing Council offices and listed art gallery. A more efficient use of the site will allow residential uses to be introduced in a way that helps assimilate the site into the adjoining, established, residential streets.
