Following extensive public consultation, developers Roffey have submitted a revised planning application for the Aquarena site to Worthing Borough Council.
Roffey Homes’ vision for the former swimming pool site, in Brighton Road, includes a 15-storey tower, café and seafront square. The number of homes has decreased from 147 to 141, and includes on-site affordable housing provision. Commercial space in the development has more than doubled from 313 square metres to 779 square metres. There are also increases in parking provision, with 172 spaces for residents of the development and 51 for members of the public when visiting Splashpoint and the seafront.
Deputy Lib Dem Leader Bob Smytherman said: “We welcome the new planning application from Roffey homes for this key landmark site on our seafront. It’s really important Worthing Borough Council insist on a minimum of 40% affordable housing on site or 50% if this is to built off site to support our ever increasing housing waiting list”.
