Strategic Employment Land Allocations are areas of land identified within Arun to accommodate major employment and commercial developments within this time period.

The sites consist of 4 Strategic Employment Land Allocations known as Salt Box Field (11.7ha), Rowan Park (3.2ha), Oldlands Farm (23.8ha) and the former LEC Refrigeration (29.3ha) sites. They are located to the north of Bognor Regis and development will provide new commercial and retail outlets including warehousing, shops and food retail which will incorporate planned new employment provision and opportunities to support the objective of reducing out commuting and creating local jobs.
