New partnership deal to deliver growth in Adur and Worthing

Released: Tuesday, 21 March 2017

A joint council commitment has been made to support the delivery of thousands of new jobs and homes in Adur and Worthing.

Adur & Worthing Councils and West Sussex County Council have made a joint pledge to work in partnership on a number of key projects during the next five years.

The Adur and Worthing Growth Deal is the third growth deal in the county which focuses on local priorities and sets out an agreement to align resources to deliver sustainable growth.

Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said:

“As Councils, our first priority is always our residents so by working closer together we can multiply our impact and unlock opportunities for new homes and employment.”

“We will also use our combined knowledge to attract investments from the private sector and funding opportunities from a variety of sources. I am so delighted to have this agreement in place and look forward to seeing its impact.”

The Councils have agreed to work together to deliver a set of growth priorities for the area. These include:

Neil Parkin, Leader of Adur District Council, said:

“This is another step forward as we continue our ambitious plans to create high-quality places for people to live, work and visit in Adur.”

“This five year deal with West Sussex shows our commitment to working with others to create hundreds of new homes and new jobs across the district while providing great value for money for local taxpayers.”

“It means we can bring forward new developments, such as the proposal for New Monks Farm, as well as bringing redundant sites, such as the former Burrscrofte care home in Pond Road, back into use.”

“Where better to sign this deal than in the Shoreham Centre, a building which shows our commitment to creating platforms for our communities to thrive.”

Daniel Humphreys, Leader of Worthing Borough Council, said:

“As Council budgets continue to be reduced to pay down the national deficit, it is vital that different parts of the public sector work together to get the best possible result for our local communities.”

“The Adur and Worthing Growth Deal will use money from existing budgets, as well as new revenue generated through business rates, to bring forward major projects such as regenerating Worthing Town Centre and installing Gigabit Fibre Broadband in our area.”

“In forming ever closer ties with West Sussex County Council and by adopting a more business-like approach, we will generate investment in Worthing to benefit the whole of our community.”

The growth deals support the delivery of the Future West Sussex Plan which focuses on creating a thriving economy in West Sussex.

Work is ongoing to explore growth deals for other areas of the County.
