Worthing Retail & Town Centre Uses Study - August 2017

To help inform the emerging Worthing Local Plan the Council commissioned consultants to undertake a borough-wide retail and commercial leisure study. The purpose of the study is to provide the Council with an up-to-date understanding of the current health and performance to the borough's retail and leisure offer within the existing network of town centres and set out current and future needs for additional floorspace for the town over the Plan period to 2033. It also provides recommendations regarding the suitability of the Council's existing policy approach in respect of retail and town centre uses.
