Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes

To provide an update and reaffirm the
council’s commitment to the production of a Joint Area Action
Plan together with Adur District Council and West Sussex County
Council. Cabinet are asked to agree to the establishment of a Joint
Committee with ADC and WSCC to steer the project forward.
1. That Cabinet notes the progress of the project.
2. That Cabinet reaffirms the council’s commitment to the production together with Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council of a Joint Area Action Plan for Shoreham Harbour that will test the capacity of the harbour area and provide the planning framework to guide delivery over the next 20-30 years.
3. That Cabinet endorses the approach to investment in the key work strands subject to short term cashflow issues being resolved and an overall project review.
4. That Cabinet agrees in principle to establish a Joint Committee with ADC and WSCC to steer the project forward subject to terms of reference being agreed at a future Cabinet meeting.
Reasons for the decision:
The changing funding position and the need for a greater leadership role for the local authorities has necessitated the establishment of a Joint Committee with Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council to steer the project forward.
Alternative options considered:
The proposal to establish a Joint Committee reflects the greater leadership role now being undertaken by the local authorities. The project management arrangements, budget management and procurement strategy will also need to reflect this new position. The structure will be kept under review and alternative arrangements may well be necessary in future.
