Goring Gap should be developed into a community of new homes, as was originally planned in 1930. It is NOT a conservation area. In 1930 Goring Gap formed part of the land surrounding Goring Hall, now a private hospital. Plans were agreed by Worthing Borough Council (formerly Worthing Corporation) to develop all of the land from the Littlehampton Road to the Seafront. The town agreed to purchase the Greensward as an open space for £15,000 and was given the Ilex Way and the Plantation in return for granting planning permission. This was all documented and is stored in the archives at Worthing library. The original agreed plan and town meeting notes are all still there. Click here to read more.
