Ropetackle Development: Community Group Consultation with SEEDA
first general plan is revealed. It is a bit boring, a few apartment blocks
and an awkward route through traffic-calmed roads to the Public Hard. What
is planned north of Little High Street is not so important from a visually
as the view of where the old King's Head used to be from the east. The
builders for the planned estate are likely to be Berkeley Homes.
Shoreham High Street in the 1930's looking west towards an area known as the Ropetackle that remains undeveloped into the New Millennium. The pub called the King's Head closed in 1983 and was demolished about 7 years later.
I did not use the word "ostentatious", but that is probably what I had in mind. I did say "something all passer-by would notice that they were in Shoreham".
The planners have had discussions with the waterside and boat users community about the boat launching facilities into the new millennium. The current flint buildings are expected to be demolished and their materials reused as part of the development. The planners/architects were convincing, but when the cost implications arise, sometimes the best laid plans go awry. The development will include amenities like a walkway and free space that can be enjoyed by the residents of Shoreham. The number of residential properties is expected to be around 220, which is very high. There is only a small commercial sector, and there are not expected to be many new jobs. The road junction at the end of the High Street is expected to be realigned. The housing allocation near the railway viaduct may be unsuitable because of noise.
Plans for improvements to the Old Fort, Shoreham-by-Sea are on display at the Civic Centre.

If you find the above link a bit too wordy and irritating to read you are not the only one, but it raises more doubt than I expected about the accuracy of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. i.e. I expected it to be in accurate regarding dates and may be get some of the place names wrong, but it appears it is essentially unreliable.
obvious thing to do next is to see what archaeological and place name evidence
there is to back up the pattern of Saxon settlement in Sussex.

For any company or organisation wanting nationwide green publicity, there is an opportunity to sponsor the journal "Glaucus" of the British Marine Life Study Society.
There remains sponsorship opportunities on the BMLSS (England) web site and other publications, including Torpedo.
Sponsorship is also available for the Adur Torpedo Electronic News Bulletin and the Shoreham-by-Sea web pages (which preceded the Adur Resource Centre web site), which would be more suitable for a local firm(s).
