Arun District Council is on the hunt for an architect to deliver a series of ‘innovative’ new public realm schemes in Littlehampton
The project is part of an ongoing effort by the local authority to boost pedestrian connectivity within the coastal West Sussex town.
A wayfinding plan was drawn up in 2014 and signs installed last year created a new route from the town centre to seafront.
A series of pedestrian improvement schemes have also been proposed in a study dubbed ‘9 Big Ideas for Littlehampton’.
The winning team will be expected to develop these conceptual ideas into ‘meaningful and detailed design plans.’
According to the contract notice: ‘The employer is seeking to appoint consultancy services which can demonstrate an innovative approach to quality design with expertise in urban landscaping, public realm, waterfront and town centre regeneration.
‘The work will include the production of high quality design plans that offer creative solution for interconnecting Littlehampton town centre, the seafront and riverside through a pedestrian route.’
Local landmarks include Flanagan Lawrence’s competition-winning 20m² seafront stage (pictured), Thomas Heatherwick’s East Beach café and a 324-metre long bench by Studio Weave.
The deadline for applications is 19 January.
