WORTHING residents are being called to air their views about plans to revitalise the town’s ‘tired’ shopping precinct.

On Wednesday, Worthing County Local Committee (CLC) will be hosting a public event, where locals can view plans and ask any questions regarding the Montague Place paving improvements.

A county council spokeswoman said: “Montague Street is the busiest street in Worthing with pedestrians walking along it more than 6.5million times per year.

“In recent years the paving has started to deteriorate, showing its age and so the street is now looking tired and dilapidated.”

The improvement scheme is due to be carried out between January and June next year.

Those keen to find out details of the proposals are being urged to attend the drop-in event, at 5.30pm, in the Devonshire Room of the Chatsworth Hotel, in The Steyne.

The open event will be prior to the formal meeting of the Worthing CLC, where the committee will receive a presentation on next steps for the improvements as part of the formal agenda.

This debate – as well as the session before – is open to the public.

Other items on the agenda include the committee considering the latest round of applications for community initiative funding, as well as applications for the annual prevention and well-being grants.

Residents can also raise any questions to the committee during the open forum. For the full agenda or to see details of the town centre plan, see www.westsussex.gov.uk
