Planning permission has been granted for a new water sports development on Littlehampton Seafront, set to open in late 2018.
The Conservative Group at Arun District Council offered no objection to the development application, with Councillor Mrs Gillian Brown, Leader of ADC and Cabinet Member for Economy and Policy, noting: “The facility will provide an enjoyable environment to eat and drink and to capture the views out to sea. There are limited facilities to support water based activities on the seafront and I am sure the venue will quickly become a popular and well-established water sports destination.”
Jamie Hawkins, the successful business operator, will be investing £500k into the facility and creating 10 full time jobs and 12 part-time jobs for the area. He added: “The venue will offer a wide selection of food and drinks for both the local community and visitors to enjoy and we are delighted to be working with Arun District Council on making this concept a reality.”
