Worthing Integrated Care Centre granted planning permission

Date posted: August 27, 2020

A new Integrated Care Centre for Worthing has been granted planning permission by Worthing Borough Council this week. The new centre will bring together a range of healthcare services and multi-storey car park onto a single site. The decision was unanimous, and the planning committee praised how well this complex scheme fits within the town’s ‘Civic Quarter’, alongside important heritage assets including the listed Assembly Halls.

Selected for our ability to design large, complex buildings in the most sensitive of locations, we developed a design which expresses the key functional relationships within an elegant, linear form, arranged around a central, ‘vertical’ street.

The building will be home to a broad range of services, including a large GP surgery, mental health services, community services, dentistry, and a new pharmacy. ArchitecturePLB have led an extensive consultation process, involving multiple, diverse healthcare providers, to ensure that the key aspiration for truly collaborative working within an integrated service model, is achieved. 

The project will start on site in the half in the first half of 2021.
