North Littlehampton Committed Site (Hampton Park)
Development to the north of Littlehampton is a committed strategic site. This means the development was approved and commenced prior to the Local Plan 2011-2031 being adopted. A strategic site is land identified within Arun to accommodate major developments for housing within this time period.
The North Littlehampton site is located in the Toddington area of Littlehampton, to the north of the railway line. The development has been named ‘Hampton Park’.
Development is well underway on this site to provide at least 1,200 dwellings. This will be key to supporting the regeneration of the town and economic growth area.
Financial contributions have been secured for local infrastructure improvements to the town, including a community hub comprising employment floor space, a new community centre, new healthcare facilities, youth and leisure facilities, a recycling centre, public open space, including a central wetlands area, and children’s play areas. A new hotel and a care home are also included.
New vehicular access will be created from the A259, bridging over the railway line, with additional access from Mill Lane & Toddington Lane.
Please select the information below to see an overview summary of the approved development. We will provide updates to bring you the latest information.

THE NORTHERN SECTION OF THE FITZALAN LINK ROAD
A new reserved matters application (LU/152/20/RES) has been submitted for the northern section of the Fitzalan Link Road between the A259 Worthing Road and the East Street/Fitzalan roundabout. This new application identifies changes to the highway verges including the removal of the surface water drainage features, including ponds and swales, and replacing them with underground storage tanks, together with changes to the location of the trees and shrubs along the edge of the highway.

THE NORTHERN SECTION OF THE FITZALAN LINK ROAD
A reserved matters application (LU/152/20/RES) has been submitted relating to appearance, layout, scale and landscaping of the previously approved LU/63/11 (outline planning application) for the construction of the northern section of the Fitzalan Link Road between the A259 Worthing Road and the East Street/Fitzalan roundabout. The site is located on the northern edge of Littlehampton approximately 1.9km from the town centre.
This new reserved matters application (LU/152/20/RES) takes on board the changes to the layout, appearance, scale and landscaping of the highway verges which were made to the northern section of the Fitzalan Link Road at the Section 278 (detailed design) stage, which were approved by the Local Highway Authority. The changes to the highway verges which were made at the Section 278 (detailed design) stage comprised the replacement of the surface water attenuation basins (i.e. ponds) and swales with underground storage tanks and changes to the location of the trees and shrubs along the edge of the highway. These changes to the highway verges meant that the original reserved matters approval (LU/234/16/RES) was no longer implementable and a new reserved matters application was required”.
Works have resumed and progress is being made with regard to the Southern section of the Lyminster bypass and the Fitzalan Link Road. The images below show these sections of the bypass.
