Montague Street, Worthing

Mixed use residential and commercial development on a challenging site.

Obtaining planning consent for a challenging site

The site is in a prominent position, on a key linking route between the seafront promenade and the pedestrianised Montague Street shopping area, but 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.

Haines Phillips Architects achieved an excellent planning consent for our Client for a mixed use scheme on this challenging site.

Our 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.


The development is located in Worthing, West Sussex.
