Previous plans for West Parade/Grand Avenue

The Chatsworth Hotel, in Steyne Gardens, Worthing, will host a consultation event on Wednesday (September 21) on its latest proposal for the corner of Grand Avenue and West Parade.

A statement ahead of the event by planning agents ECE read: “The revised proposals for the residential redevelopment at 25-26 West Parade have been informed fully by the inspector’s comments on the refused scheme and will deliver an outstanding residential development in the heart of Worthing.”

Worthing Borough Council refused permission for the development last year, which would have stood at a peak height of 11 storeys.

Roffey’s appeal was dismissed by planning inspector John Gray in May.

In a decision notice, he wrote: “The proposed development would be inappropriate in design terms because of a combination of its siting (forward of the building lines on West Parade and Grand Avenue), height (significantly taller than its neighbours) and massing (in relation to both Regis Court and the dwellings on Grand Avenue).”

The event will be held between 3pm and 7pm, in the Devonshire room.
