Shoreham Maritime Development Unworkable
Ambitious plans to develop Shoreham Harbour into a mixed use waterside development are probably unworkable
A report to be presented to the Brighton & Hove Council’s Policy & Resources Committee next week suggests that a major funding shortfall to finance road improvements to the site mean that the vision is not achievable.
There is a funding gap of over £177m for a tunnel to the site and a gap of over £92m for the less expensive alternative of a surface road linking the harbour to the A27. The problem is exacerbated by the reluctance of Shoreham Port Authority which owns part of the site to lend any financial support to the access costs.
