Council to consult the public on plans to enhance the Sunken Gardens in Bognor Regis.

Arun District Council will be asking residents to have their say on a scheme to refurbish the Sunken Gardens in the town.

The proposals include an upgrade to the existing play area, improvements to visibility through the gardens and provision of a new southern entrance, which will make the gardens more accessible for all visitors.

Experienced design consultants LUC were appointed to prepare design proposals and support the council in delivering the preferred scheme.

Initial proposals have now been drawn up and these will be unveiled to the public on 15 November 2021 as part of a public consultation that will run until 6 December 2021.

Councillor David Edwards, Chair of the Environment and Neighbourhood Services Committee at Arun District Council, said: “Now that work has begun on the Place St Maur scheme in the town, we are really pleased to be in a position to consult the public on another scheme to improve Bognor Regis.

“If you want to have a say in how the plans to enhance the Sunken Gardens will look, then please get involved in the consultation as we’d like to hear from as many people as possible.”

Concept proposals were presented to members of the Environment and Neighbourhood Services Committee by LUC on 23 September 2021, and it was agreed these should be taken forward for public consultation.

The consultation can be viewed, and a questionnaire completed, via the Arun District Council website at www.lucmaps.co.uk/sunkengardens

Following consultation, public feedback will be reflected in the preferred design. Work to deliver the project is due to begin in Summer 2022.
