Block the block not Worthing beach!
Time is running out for residents of Worthing to oppose property developer Roffey Homes proposed 21 storey tower block on our beautiful beach. Adur & Worthing Council have received 1089 objections to Roffey's revised planning application (submitted after their initial application was met with a storm of public disapproval), and today's protest outside Worthing Aquarena garnered even more support for the cause.
The town's residents understand the need for development on this very special seafront site and would welcome a plan that was civic minded, ergonomic in scale and sympathetic to the environment instead of this one dreamt up by property developers looking for the most lucrative return on their investment at any cost.
Roffey's revised plan makes no concession to the public outcry and offers no improvement on their first. It still comprises 147 apartments stacked on top of each other to create a 21 storey tower that will blight Worthing seafront forever.
It is not too late to add your name to the online petition and you can still register your objection to the planning application here. There will be a hearing at Worthing Town Hall on Tuesday 22nd September at 6pm and I urge you to come and join us in making public our opposition to this scheme.
