Place St Maur
Place St Maur is an important public space close to the seafront in Bognor Regis. It was previously identified as being suitable for outdoor events and to make a stronger connection between the beach and town centre. The improvement project will create a high-quality and welcoming space for visitors to spend time in. Work began October 2021 and is set to be complete by Spring 2022.
News on the progress of the scheme and how this may affect your business or visit into Bognor Regis will be posted in this section. Work began October 2021 and is set to be complete by Spring 2022. Local businesses including Alexandra Theatre, Brewer's Fayre, Sweet Flamingo and Falcon Homes are still open at this time.
