Plans to create some of Adur's first council properties for more than 30 years have taken a big step forward after a deal was struck to create dozens of homes for those on the housing waiting list.
Private developers received permission to create 50 apartments on local authority land in Albion Street, Southwick, in November 2018.
As part of the agreement, 15 of these homes would have been made available for social rent.
But, now Adur District Council has stepped in and taken over the whole scheme to ensure that all 50 units will be available to individuals and families on the housing waiting list.
With the site cleared last year, work on securing contractors to build the new development is underway. The aim is for construction to start next spring.
