Council to consult the public on plans to transform Place St Maur

Arun District Council will be asking residents to have their say on an exciting scheme to renovate a public space in Bognor Regis.

After a successful funding bid to Coast to Capital, the Council has been provisionally awarded a £1.2 million grant to completely revive Place St Maur, transforming it into an attractive and welcoming space.

The Coast to Capital grant, which has been agreed in principle, is set to fund a project to create a stronger connection between the esplanade and town centre to raise its appeal to local people and tourists alike.

Early proposals include water jets, a creative lighting scheme and modern seating areas to encourage people to relax and enjoy the setting.

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 11 February 2021 as part of a public consultation that will run until 8 March 2021.

Once it goes live the consultation can be viewed, and a questionnaire completed, via the Arun District Council website and at

Councillor Samantha-Jayne Staniforth, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services, said: “We are excited to be able to show these early designs to the public and would encourage everyone to have their say as your input will help to shape the final designs - and you could be a part of the history of the transformed space!
