SHW has been appointed on a two-year contract, by Arun District Council, to manage the Arcade, Bognor Regis, along with associated services for the wider estate.

The Arcade, Bognor Regis is located at the southern end of the shopping precinct and comprises 19 ground floor units, of which 17 units are currently let, with vacant spaces on the first and second floors above. The predominantly retail and hospitality units range from 161 sq ft to 1,507 sq ft.

SHW will assume management of the service contracts at the Arcade, including security, fire safety, cleaning, waste services, and pest control, ensuring minimum disruption to the tenants and the premises. In addition, SHW will provide property management and professional advice relating to the Arcade and Arun District Council’s wider general fund asset portfolio, which includes approximately 1,000 assets varying from beach huts to sports pavilions and light industrial units.

Adrian Dack, SHW’s Head of Property Management, comments: “This significant instruction is testament of the strength of our property management team and the wider professional and agency services provided by SHW across the UK. We look forward to working with Arun District Council and building a strong relationship with them and with their stakeholders across the portfolio.”

The appointment was won in competition with a number of other firms and one of several new mandates awarded to SHW over the last six months.

Paul Broggi, Property, Estates and Facilities Manager at Arun District Council, says: “The arcade is an important asset for both the council and the town of Bognor Regis. We welcome the appointment of SHW as our managing agents. With their experience and expertise, we are very much looking forward to achieving significant improvements in the general management of the arcade”.
