Planning Consent Obtained for Challenging Site in Central Worthing
Haines Phillips Architects has achieved an excellent planning consent for our Client for a mixed use scheme on this challenging site in central Worthing.
The site is in a prominent position, on a key linking route between the seafront promenade and the pedestrianised Montague Street shopping area, but is currently occupied by an unattractive commercial building from the 1970's that relates poorly to its surroundings. The site straddles two Conservation Areas and a terrace of listed cottages sits opposite the flank elevation.
The design proposals take the opportunity to create 26 high quality residential apartments, behind and over commercial space at ground floor street level, whilst respecting and enhancing the context of the Conservation Areas in which they sit. The residential units provide a mix appropriate to the town centre location and the commercial areas have flexible spaces serving the Montague Street shopping area.
Further details on the project can be viewed on our website here.
