At the time of writing (July 2010) some buildings in Teville Gate have been demolished and the site now looks somewhat derelict. Ambitious plans for the future of Teville Gate were published in the Worthing Herald on Thursday 22nd July (see below) and are due to go before the planners in September 2010. Plans were on display at Worthing Town Hall, Chapel Road on Friday 23rd July and Saturday 24th July 2010.
