Hyder wins Shoreham Port masterplan

Consultant Hyder has won the contract to masterplan the new Shoreham Port near Brighton.

The region has been awarded Growth Point status by central Government, to promote sustainable growth for local communities, businesses and new housing.

Hyder will develop the plan over the coming year to meet Department for Transport (DfT) guidance.

Hyder’s director of its Land Development and Buildings sector, Andrew Henderson, said: “This is an extremely important project for the area, as it will establish the strategic direction for the future development of the port.

“The appointment is a major win for Hyder, consolidating and enhancing our profile in the sector and demonstrating fantastic teamwork in putting together a compelling and high-quality bid,” he said.

Outgoing Chief Executive for Shoreham Port Trust, Rod Johnstone, said: “We had a number of excellent submissions and the decision was certainly not an easy one but we are confident that Hyder can help us deliver an excellent Shoreham Port Master Plan.”

Clients the Shoreham Port Authority is one of three, one of the organisations in the Shoreham Harbour Regeneration Partnership – which also includes the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA) and three local authorities. The partnership is working to achieve economic, social and infrastructure improvements to the Port land and wider area.
