Endorsement Growth Programme funding: Littlehampton Public Realm Improvements, Terminus Road Phase

In August 2018 the Arun Growth Deal, identified Littlehampton Public Realm Improvements (LHPRI) in the town centre as a priority for the regeneration of the West Sussex coastal economy. 

 

The LHPRI project is key to the economic regeneration of the Littlehampton coastal town centre, aligning with the Economic Reset Plan (2020-24) and ‘Our Council Plan’ (2021-25).  The LHPRI scheme responds to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and supports growth of the Littlehampton visitor economy and hospitality sector and promotes sustainable travel options and connectivity by upgrading the urban digital infrastructure. The County Council contribution is aligned to the recent Arun Levelling Up award.

 

The Terminus Road phase aims to create an attractive environment and accessible public space around Littlehampton station.   The design will create a gateway for visitors, with enhance access points, upgrades to paving and clear crossing points. The aim is to promote sustainable modes of transport such as walking and cycling, support carbon reduction and community connectivity and wellbeing benefits.
