Issue details

Littlehampton Economic Growth Area (LEGA)

This report seeks to update the Committee on the progress of the LEGA Study which primarily proposes to suspend any such work on the West Bank elements on the basis that it might prove unnecessary and therefore not a good use of public money.

The updated Study will proceed with the brief for the Riverside/Climping areas. Given that the rationale for undertaking the brief was to explore other delivery options, this study will examine the LEGA Strategic Allocation from the perspective of scope for enabling delivery to come forward more quickly and viably through looking at the site in context with surrounding land uses to see whether there is material evidence to suggest the configuration could be improved.
