Seasonal concessions

About concessions

As part of the continuing Seafront Strategy project, the Place and Investment Team aims to create a more vibrant and active seafront where there is a wide variety of things for people to see and do by offering concession licences for activities and outlets along the promenade.

In Worthing: the area for Seasonal Concessions includes the length of the seafront from Western Road in the east to Goring Gap in the west. Each year we have a number of returning concessions, covering a variety of offers including mobile refreshments, fresh seafood and water sports.

In Adur: whilst there is no formal promenade in Adur, there are still opportunities for concessional activities within the Recreation Grounds and Parks. These are available by contacting our Parks Team directly by email to:

Concession Licence Fees

All Concession Licence Fees collected are spent improving the seafront area to make enhancements for residents and visitors, and help to create further concession opportunities.

For licences outside our marketed sites, a daily rate will apply. In 2018, the rate will be £12.00 (+ VAT if applicable) per day. For longer periods, we offer weekly rates at £66.00 per week, and monthly rates at £264.00 per month. Please note that most concessions do not attract VAT; this will be checked at the point of completion of licence.

An administration fee of £45.00 will be applied to each licence to cover the arrangement and processing charges.
