Goring Gap caravan and camping site planning application – refused

The following planning application has just been refused by Adur and Worthing Borough Council:

Land South East corner of Amberley Drive/ Marine Drive at Goring – Change of use of land to caravan and camping site with 46 pitches. Erection of amenity block building comprising toilets and showers, laundry room, store, office and reception. Construction of vehicular crossover and provision of parking and bin storage area.

We are greatly reassured by Worthing BC’s decision on 1 June to refuse what would have been a major intrusion on a currently unspoiled area with much scenic and amenity value..DSC00661

It was good to see over 400 objections from our members and other residents in Goring and Worthing displayed on the Council’s web site. Such a response strengthens the views of both Worthing and Arun Councils that the Gap should be kept free of any development.
