Public Consultation on Draft Joint Area Action Plan

Between 17th February and 25th April 2014, Shoreham Harbour Regeneration is holding ten weeks of public consultation on the Draft Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP):

Each chapter of the Draft JAAP can also be downloaded separately:

A leaflet summarising the key proposals in the JAAP is also available:

A summary document of proposals and policies has also been produced:

A Draft Transport Strategy has been prepared to support the JAAP. This sets out a package of measures that will need to be put in place to support new development at the harbour.

A Sustainability Appraisal (including Strategic Environmental Assessment) of the JAAP has been prepared in accordance with Section 39 (2) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. This aims to ensure the JAAP takes account of environmental, social and economic issues. This document is also subject to consultation between 17th February and 25th April 2014:

A non-technical summary of the Draft Sustainability Appraisal is also available:

Seafront Survey

We are also carrying out a Seafront Survey about the use of Portslade and Southwick beaches.

What will you do with my comments?

All the comments will be reviewed and considered by officers and will be made available to view following the consultation period. Organisation names will be published; individual names and contact details will be anonymised. All the feedback received will be used to refine the document through to the next stage.

What happens after the consultation?

Depending on the issues raised, a further round of consultation may be required. Following this, the 'Pre-Submission' version of the JAAP will be published for final comment (likely to be in 2015) before the JAAP is submitted to the Secretary of State to be considered by the Inspector at an independent Public Examination.
