Have your say to help renovate a public space in Bognor Regis

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

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.

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 have been unveiled to the public as part of a public consultation that will run until 8 March 2021.

The consultation can be viewed, and a questionnaire completed, via the Arun District Council website.

Anyone unable to access the consultation online can call 01903 737500 to request a paper copy of the plans and questionnaire.

Site surveys have been undertaken and information gathered from stakeholders to assist the design process. 

The designs for the site focus on keeping the space as flexible as possible so that events can be held but keeping it attractive and interesting so that it will be a popular space to visit all year round.

Work is due to begin in Autumn 2021 after all the proposals have been considered and a final plan to reflect the public’s wish list drawn up.
