Bognor Regis is on the Rise
The_Track Bognor Regis is an initiative led by West Sussex County Council to support the growth of creative and digital businesses in Bognor Regis and coastal West Sussex. Supported by the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, the project has transformed vacant space within the Grade II Listed Bognor Regis railway station into an exciting collaborative space for businesses and freelancers.
Designed by internationally renowned designer Wayne Hemingway and his team at Hemingway Design, The Track combines the character of a building full of local history, with the vision of a space designed for how we work today – with ultrafast fibre connection and flexible workspace. The council is pleased to be working with innovative and experienced operators Town Square Spaces to bring this new opportunity to the community in Bognor Regis.
TownSq startup communities across the country specialise in supporting individual entrepreneurs and small and growing businesses in urban communities. Town Square is also a certified member of B Corp, which recognises business as being a source for good in the community. As founders Mandy Weston and Gareth Jones say, “We are passionate about making a positive contribution to the world, to our communities and to each individual.”
