Local Neighbourhood Improvement Area
Arun is a district of contrasts, from its beautiful coastline to its rolling countryside and that contrast carries through to our communities as well.
Within the district we have some of the most deprived wards in the whole of West Sussex, with life expectancy significantly lower in some areas than that of residents living just a few miles away.
These areas need special attention to address these serious issues and improve the quality of life for residents living there. They are called Local Neighbourhood Improvement Area’s or LNIA’s for short.
In Littlehampton, the LNIA are the electoral wards of River, Ham and Wick with Toddington.
In Bognor Regis, the LNIA are the electoral wards of Marine, Hotham, Pevensey, Orchard and Bersted.

Work to address these issues is not the responsibility of one organisation alone. More can be achieved by working together and this targeted approach brings together many experts who all have a part to play in ensuring on-the-ground improvements are delivered, including the Police, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, the NHS West Sussex, Arun District Council, West Sussex County Council, the voluntary service and the Arun Wellbeing team.
All these organisations and many more, are working together to address issues around:
Health inequalities (including premature mortality)
There are a number of projects that have been created to specifically tailor to the needs of the residents of the LNIA areas. These can be viewed by clicking on the project name.
