Public realm

At Southern Housing Group, we strive to deliver homes and spaces that are both efficient and beautiful. Our proposals for Free Wharf will deliver a project that enhances the experience of all those living, working, and visiting the Adur area. This is why, in addition to providing a significant number of high-quality new homes at Free Wharf, we will also build new and exciting public realm for the whole community to enjoy, including:


  • Floating pontoons with moorings and facilities for river users.
  • An attractive riverside walkway and cycle paths.
  • Landscaped open spaces and gardens.
  • Retail and commercial amenities.



These new features will improve the riverside’s aesthetic and enhance the experience for the wider local community as well as visitors to the area. Our design means that over 50% of the site will be public realm which will also mean wide, open spaces providing clear view through the site. With supporting facilities and much-needed infrastructure improvements included within the designs, Free Wharf’s public spaces and amenities will greatly enhance this long-neglected part of the area.


Find out more about our design for the site on our History of Free Wharf page.
