We Asked

Consultation on the proposed modifications took place between 11 January 2019 and 22 February 2019, in accordance with the councils’ Statements of Community Involvement and the relevant legislation and regulation.

You Said

After considering all the representations made in response to the consultation, the Government appointed Planning Inspector issued her report in July 2019 together with a schedule of Main Modifications.

We Did

The Planning Inspector was requested to recommend Main Modifications to make the Plan sound and legally compliant and capable of adoption. The Inspector concluded that with the recommended main modifications set out in the Appendix to her report, the JAAP satisfies the requirements of Section 20(5) of the 2004 Act and meets the criteria for soundness in the National Planning Policy Framework. For more details please read the Adoption of the Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan document.


The Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) has been prepared to help deliver regeneration and associated infrastructure proposed at Shoreham Harbour.  The JAAP has been produced jointly by the Shoreham Harbour Regeneration Partnership. The partnership consists of the local planning authorities of Adur & Worthing, Brighton & Hove City Council and West Sussex County Council, working with Shoreham Port Authority. 

On 31 May 2018, the plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for public examination.  Examination hearing sessions took place on 19 and 20 September 2018. The appointed planning Inspector wrote to the councils to recommend Main Modifications to the Joint Area Action Plan to make the plan sound and legally compliant.  The Inspector is inviting comments on the Main Modifications to the JAAP from 18 January 2019 – 1 March 2019. 

Further information about the JAAP modifications consultation, and the response forms can be accessed here.

Once adopted, the JAAP will form part of the development plan for the area, alongside the Brighton & Hove City Plan, Adur Local Plan, and waste and minerals plans.
