Worthing Assembly Hall, in Stoke Abbott Road, will host a special meeting of Worthing Borough Council’s planning committee on Thursday, January 19 from 6.30pm.

The committee will consider Roffey Homes’ latest designs, which include more open space and a lower tower block than plans which were rejected last year. Committee chairman Kevin Jenkins said: “Given the high level of public interest in the planning application I have agreed to extend the public speaking arrangements.

“The number of speakers allowed will be increased to 10 – 5 for and 5 against – and those registered to speak will be chosen via a ballot system. Each person will be given a unique number and on January 16, 2017 the names of the registered speakers and some reserves will be selected at random.”
