THE SITE

AERIAL VIEW

Hampton Quay is 2.15ha site located along the east bank of the River Arun in Littlehampton, West Sussex. The main access point into the site is from an existing exit road from the Bridge road roundabout.

 

The site is within the Littlehampton Economic Growth Area (LEGA) illustrated in the Arun District Local Plan (2011-2031).


Historically, the site encompassed a salting along the west boundary and was used as an area to exchange goods from one vessel to another playing an important part in the local economy. 

 

During the late 1900’s it has been labelled as a campsite and later as part of Wick Farm.
