The proposals are in outline form and are shown here on the draft Illustrative Masterplan, which encompasses some 19 ha overall. The main components of this mixed use scheme are set out below.


  • Approximately 465 new homes are proposed to help address the acute housing shortage in the Borough;


  • A range of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bed dwellings (mix to be agreed as part of a future Reserved Matters application)


  • 30% affordable housing will be affordable including 25% rented units and 75% shared ownership;


  • The unsightly pylons which now cross the site will be removed;

  • The land to the north of the Ferring Rife is to remain in agricultural use, and the river and its broad margins will continue to function as a wildlife corridor; The on-site open space will be opened up to the public with a larger parkland area in the northwest corner;


  • Our preliminary ideas are that Persimmon Homes will also provide a new car park for the station with space for around 40 cars as well as a new local centre.


Overall, the scheme would deliver numerous benefits to the local community and Worthing District Council as well as the Government’s New Homes Bonus Scheme and a comprehensive Section 106 package comprising of Education, healthcare, childcare, greenspace, highways and public transport contributions
