West Tarring Proposed New Toilets
WAM plan to replace the existing toilets on the West Tarring site as they are in a poor and potentially dangerous condition. Funding has been obtained for this project from The National Lottery, Worthing Community Chest and Worthing Borough Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy. WAM has consulted with Worthing Borough Council and they fully supports this project as a permitted development and as it will certainly be of benefit to the allotment community.
Similar to the example picture above, the new purpose built building will be fully insulated meaning it can be open all year. Our building will consist of 2 toilets and one of these will be an accessible toilet. There is future intention of creating an area for physically disabled tenants to undertake cultivation. As part of the toilet project, a new entrance gate will be installed at the end of the existing footpath in Lincett Drive to facilitate wheelchair access. This will replace the existing entrance gate. The toilet will be relocated further back and close to the new entrance gate to maximise utilisation of the whole area and to minimise disruption of existing plots.
Although WAM has the Council’s approval and support, we felt it important to make the wider community aware of our plans and to give the opportunity for comment on our proposal. Details of the proposal have been provided to the local residents near the Lincett Drive gate. We would very much like to proceed knowing we have the support of the West Tarring Allotment tenants and of course, the wider community. If you wish to comment on this proposal, either contact Peter Hannam by email email@example.com , or send a letter to James Appleton, Adur & Worthing Councils, Portland House, 44 Richmond Road, Worthing BN11 1HS before 6 February 2023.
