New Worthing Pier exhibition celebrating Sompting Brooks river trail and wildlife opens

A new exhibition was launched on Worthing pier on Sunday 19th September featuring photographs taken by local residents of the recently opened Sompting Brooks river trail and the wildlife it supports.

The exhibition is the culmination of a series of twelve nature and wildlife photography workshops organised as part of the Ouse & Adur River Trust’s ‘Enhancing Places, Inspiring Communities’ (EPIC) project which has realigned and enhanced a rare chalkstream and the surrounding landscape.

The photography workshops for families, teenagers and local residents was led by professional photographer Carl Slezacek, aimed at improving the photography skills of participants using a wide range of devices from smartphones to digital cameras.

Alistair Whitby, Project Officer at the Ouse & Adur Rivers Trust said “It was amazing to see everyone learning new skills and getting stuck into all the different photography challenges over the last 2 years. The exhibition is testament to how many talented local photographers of all ages we now have. Their pictures are a wonderful way of documenting the new Sompting Brooks river and its wildlife as the wetland site develops and the habitats mature. Stunning images of damselflies, birds, frogs, insects and wildflowers have all been skillfully captured”

Plans to build 469 new homes in West Sompting, with 30 per cent affordable dwellings and new green spaces, have been approved.
Members of Adur District Council’s Planning Committee last night (Sept 20) gave the green light to the development, to be built by Persimmons Homes, after negotiations between the builder and council officers to enhance the design of the development. The discussions also secured the necessary infrastructure improvements including the provision of 30 percent of the building as affordable rented accommodation to meet the needs of the District.

In addition the developer will pay the Council more than £2m to help build a new primary school at New Monks Farm, £1.7 million for transport infrastructure including traffic calming measures, cycle links to Worthing, and bus subsidy contributions.
