Each local authority is required to publish a plan looking forward about 15 years. This will help to shape the development of the area.
At the end of October 2018, Worthing Borough Council published a draft plan for the Borough and a period of public consultation started. All comments on the plan (positive or negative) must be lodged with the Council by 5pm December 12th 2018.
