Nearly 200 affordable homes are set to be created on a key Shoreham site as Adur District Council back a move to push on with developing its former headquarters.

Interest in transforming the former Adur Civic Centre in Brighton Road has been high as the local authority looks to create a high-quality, attractive building which meets the needs of the wider community.

Councillors have accepted a proposal from Hyde Homes as their preferred option moving forward.

The deal, which has the support of Homes England, would see the Council receive a lump sum for the site with the firm then creating 171 apartments above high-quality office space for local small and medium businesses.

Nearly 70 of these will be for local families on the housing waiting list.

A report to Adur & Worthing Councils' Joint Strategic Committee yesterday evening noted the proposal from Hyde was 'low-risk' as it did not rely on any third party developers or financiers.

With Councillors now backing the idea, the firm is starting work on a planning application and a detailed proposal could be presented next year. Construction on the new building could be complete by 2022.
