Help guide the development of this exceptional site
The South Downs National Park (SDNPA) has launched its consultation on their Area Action Plan (AAP) for the Shoreham Cement Works. SDNPA is seeking the views of everyone who is interested in the site. This may be because you live, work or are in education nearby, have visited or are just interested in the future of the site.
Why this is an important site
The purpose of the AAP is to guide the development of this exceptional site and help deliver an exemplar mixed-use development of regional or indeed national importance.
The Cement Works is located on the South Downs with Shoreham-by-Sea to the south and Upper Beeding, Steyning and Bramber to the north. The site sits by the Adur flood plain and to the north of the cement works is Anchor Bottom Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI), an internationally important habitat due to its chalk grass and flora.
Shoreham Cement Works is culturally important, is well-connected and visited by tourists: the South Downs Way passes by as well as the Downs Link, a popular cycle route from Guildford to Shoreham.
The local community want the site to be high quality, sustainably developed and carbon neutral.
