Montague Place consultation - 2023

Montague Place is your space - and we want to create a vibrant, green space for everyone to enjoy

At Montague Place, in the heart of Worthing town centre, we've a chance to create something for the whole community to enjoy.

We want to create a safe, green and welcoming town centre for our local communities and visitors to enjoy all year round.

Next steps

  • January - February 2023:
    Working with community organisations and other groups, we'll be developing concepts for designs during this period. This includes an accessibility assessment and consultation with the business community and town centre interest groups.
  • Spring 2023 onwards:
    Once developed, the concept designs for Montague Place will be available for the public to have their views on the options being considered.

The Council is committed to working with all parties to shape the designs, and create a vibrant, green community space for everyone to enjoy, so we'll be encouraging as many people as possible to engage in the process.

FAQs: frequently asked questions

What are the plans for Montague Place?

The plan is to enhance the area by introducing more green space and greater biodiversity, attracting wildlife and improving air quality. We also know Montague Place could be a space for community events and shopping, bringing more custom to the local economy, or simply somewhere for you to sit, relax and enjoy Worthing.

Who is managing the project?

Project Centre Ltd and Worthing Borough Council are working together to design and manage the project.

How will you make sure the space is accessible?

To gather meaningful feedback on the needs of people living with disabilities or health conditions, we are conducting an accessibility assessment around Montague Place with representatives from Worthing-based disability groups.

The insights gathered from the accessibility assessment will be reflected in concept designs taken forward for public consultation.

What are the design features of the new scheme?

From our Big Listen, you have told us that you want a green, community-friendly, safe space where you can meet friends and family, and enjoy the heart of our coastal town all year round. We want to continue to develop these ideas to put together a great design that works for us all.

We are currently working with community groups on initial plans that will then go out to broader public consultation later this year.
