Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan ENV06 (19/20)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) has been prepared jointly by the County Council, Adur District Council and Brighton & Hove City Council for an area that stretches from the Adur Ferry Bridge in the west through to Hove Lagoon (in Brighton & Hove) in the east.  Once adopted, the JAAP will become part of the statutory development plan for the area and used for the determination of planning applications. 


The draft JAAP was submitted in May 2018 for examination and the hearings took place in September 2018.  The Inspector agreed a schedule of Main Modifications for consultation.  Following the consultation, the Inspector issued her report, concluding that the JAAP was ‘sound’, subject to modifications.  A few matters of interest to the County Council were discussed at the hearing sessions and have been satisfactorily addressed through the modifications.  Other minor changes are also required prior to adoption.


Adoption of the JAAP, which will support the wider regeneration of the Shoreham Harbour area, is now being taken forward by the three councils. 



The Cabinet Member for Environment recommends to County Council, on 18 October 2019, that the Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan, incorporating the main and minor modifications (Appendix B to the report), is adopted.
