Infrastructure and transport (Worthing)
To inform and support the development of the new Worthing Local Plan this report provides a transport evidence base which demonstrates the traffic implications of potential new land use development and identifies an associated package of transport improvements.
The Council has prepared this working draft Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) to ensure that the emerging Worthing Local Plan can be supported by necessary infrastructure provision. The delivery of the right levels and type of infrastructure is essential to support new homes, economic growth and to protect the environment. It is important to note that the IDP is a mechanism for identifying the future infrastructure requirements of development proposed as a result of the Worthing Local Plan.
This document is the 'second' IDP for Worthing and supersedes the IDP published in 2010 which was prepared to support the Worthing Core Strategy (2011). The IDP is a 'live' evidence base document that will be regularly reviewed and updated as the Local Plan progresses.

This plan evaluates the current conditions and challenges affecting Worthing’s infrastructure, as well as developing a new vision for that infrastructure by identifying key infrastructure shortfalls and how they can be met.
Worthing, together with four other West Sussex authorities, commissioned the "Centre for Sustainable Energy" to prepare an evidence base on renewable energy potential in their areas. The project aimed to assess the opportunities for increased use of renewable and low carbon energy across the study area. This evidence will be used to inform policies and set appropriate targets in the Local Development Framework. The study was published in October 2009 and can be viewed using the link below.
The Transport Statement of Common Ground provides the framework to assess and define the content of transport policies in the Worthing Core Strategy.

In 2010, West Sussex County Council produced new guidance on the provision of parking in new residential development accompanied by a Residential Parking Demand Calculator. Following its publication this guidance was used informally to assess planning applications. However, officers considered the guidance to be effective and more sensitive to local conditions than the previous maximum standards and, as such, the guidance was formally adopted by the Council in March 2012. To help determine the appropriate number of parking spaces to be provided as part of any new development you should refer to and use the County Council's guidance on car parking and associated car parking demand calculator:
