The regeneration of the Regis Centre creating the first step in the re-invention of the seaside town to re-establish Bognor Regis to its former pre-eminent status.
The masterplan intrinsically links the town’s cultural heritage with the seascape forming a new public realm as a threshold between land and sea. Rock pools, a reef with extended pier, sailing and diving with new sea defences forming sandy beaches create a new water sport hub.
The new multi-use cultural centre accommodates the Arun Arts Trust and a new home for the William Blake Gallery, attracting cultural tourism extending the visitor profile and season. Residential accommodation and a hotel sit on a garden deck above car parking with business starter and craft workshops facing the esplanade.
