Town seeks closer links to harbour and waterfronts
LDA Design has been appointed by Arun District Council to draw up plans to revitalise the Sussex coastal town of Littlehampton.
Initially the detailed designs will seek to rejuvenate spaces around the station and high street as part of an application for external funding. Once this is secured, the council hopes to extend the plans to the seafront and riverside.
Council leader Gillian Brown said: 'The projects will help revamp Littlehampton town centre and seafront, which will attract and encourage more tourists to visit and help Arun residents feel even prouder of this vibrant coastal town.' Community consultation continues place until 15 May.
Littlehampton is establishing a reputation for contemporary design attractions with the sculptural metal East Beach Café (Heatherwick Studios), Flanagan Lawrence's Acoustic Shells beach shelters, and LDA's earlier Flood Bank defence doubling as pubic terraced seating.
