NEWHAVEN MARINA REDEVELOPMENT - PUBLIC EXHIBITION

July 8th, 2019.


Newhaven Marina and Morgan Carn Architects are inviting residents to attend the first of a series of public exhibitions to review proposals for the redevelopment of Newhaven Marina.


They are keen to hear residents thoughts, to help inform the design process. Architects and other members of the design team will be on hand to answer questions.

The proposals aim to complete the third and final phase of the development master plan by Morgan Carn Architects for the regeneration of the whole West Quay.

The development aims to revitalise Newhaven’s Marina as a vibrant mixed-use destination, transform the first impression of visitors, raise the profile of the town and strengthen Newhaven as a south coast attraction and gateway to the UK.

The Riverside walkway started in phases 1 and 2 will finally be completed, providing long-awaited public access to the riverside along the entire West Quay.

Completing the West Quay flood defences is another stated key priority.

A planning application for Phase 3 (the Marina) was submitted in 2007 and planning permission was granted in 2012 (application LW/07/1475) for the erection of 331 residential apartments and townhouses in 11 blocks (between 3 and 9 storeys high) with car parking; 973sqm commercial floorspace (Including A3 restaurant and/or A1 marina related shops); marina facilities (including office, clubroom etc), boat/carpark, berths and riverside walkway.

Phase 3 (the Marina) was a victim of the global recession and was never started.

Morgan Carn Architects’ revised proposals are very similar in principle to the previous approval. The scheme has been redesigned with the key aims of reducing land reclamation, increasing sustainability, ensuring viability and improving the mix of uses and the quality of public waterfront public spaces.


The exhibition will take place on:
Thursday 11th July. 4.00pm – 7.00pm
Friday 12th July. 8.00am – 11.00am
Meeching Hall. 2A Fort Road. Newhaven BN9 9AQ
