South Down Project

The Shoreham Cement Works has been an eyesore for decades, and most people think that something should be done to improve it. The dilemma is: what?

Right now, there is a unique opportunity for the local communities, the stakeholders, and anyone else who cares about what happens in the Shoreham Chalk Pit, to make their voice heard.

The South Down Project is a group of locals who think this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to bring a world class development to our area.

Plans to revamp Montague Centre approved

Montague Shopping Centre is set to be transformed into a restaurant destination after plans were approved by Worthing Borough Council's Planning Committee.

New River Retail's application included the construction of a new freestanding glazed kiosk and the change in usage of several units from shops to restaurants and cafes.

The kiosk is designed specifically for Patisserie Valerie, who's arrival will be key to bringing other high quality restaurant operators to the Centre. The application also features new paving throughout the Montague Centre, replacement of existing trees with similar high quality trees, and new street furniture.                                              ^Montague Centre Artists Impression^

Cllr Kevin Jenkins, Chair of Worthing Borough Council's Planning Committee, commented:

“This is an exciting opportunity in the heart of Worthing. We appreciate hearing from everyone who took part in the consultation. From the evidence provided in this application, we feel that the benefits of the proposed scheme to Worthing outweigh the potential impacts. Our town centre will be enhanced by bringing units back into economical use and by creating a new restaurant destination, bringing significant investment to our town.”
