ECE Planning are delighted to announce our move to Bayside, one of West Sussex’s most highly anticipated developments.
As part of our ongoing expansion plans and commitment to staff and growing client-base, the ECE Group Sussex studio will move from Goring-by-sea to a new, state-of-the-art 6,500 sq/ft studio space in the centre of Worthing, cementing our reputation as the largest Architects and Planning Consultancy in the county.
The mixed-use development consists of two elements – the 15 storey Bayside Vista, with stunning views across the English Channel and the Sussex Downs, and Bayside Horizon which helps create two new public spaces, one on the seafront and the other outside Splashpoint Leisure Centre. ECE will occupy the ground floor commercial space on the north side of Bayside Horizon.
ECE Planning and client Roffey Homes secured planning permission for the scheme on the old Aquarena site. The proposals demonstrated the provision of an outstanding development that will act as the eastern gateway to Worthing and as a visual catalyst for change, demonstrating the progressive spirit of the town.
ECE Planning Managing Director Chris Barker said:
“Having guided this exciting scheme successfully through the planning process we are now thrilled to be making Bayside our new home in the summer.”
Work started on Bayside Apartments in November 2018 and will complete in the spring of 2021. ECE’s move will be completed in the autumn of 2021 and will see its complete workforce of over 70 people make the move.
