All options

Unfortunately,

The whole matter arises every few decades as it is not of a size to be financially viable in its own right.

At chi, the bar is dredged for free by Lavant council. The 9,000 boats over 3 meters on their books develop a combined moorings and Harbour dues revenue stream of 835,000. Anually.

Littlehampton would be lucky if it had a tenth of the number of boats.

It has to clean its own bar, and the overspill from the beaches that the river agency ignores and refuses to do.


None of the options really address the periodical mess that the harbour ends up in. But another 20 years would be better than nothing!

A development!

Alledgedly, West Sussex County Council has decided to replace Louise Goldsmith, their representative on the Little Hampton Harbour board.

LG was the one who suggested that the harbour be allowed to return to 'a natural state' and the area become a large nature park with varied leisure use but not necessarily boating.

I can help that think that WSCC has done this as a direct result of the pressure applied to them by people emailing and writing to them expressing their disgust.

Thank you all for your support in this.

We have done something, better than nothing, we made a difference.
