Southwick Square Improvements

The Site

The Adur Growth Plan is a 5-year regeneration project that sees Adur District Council partner with West Sussex County Council. As part of this regeneration, £600,000 is being spent on improvement works at Southwick Square, with aim to create a more inviting environment for locals and tourists alike.

The scheme will see the addition of open spaces for entertainment, markets and outdoor eating experiences, as well as improvements to the current soft landscaping to help make Southwick Square an attraction rather than a thoroughfare destination.


With the expected increase in footfall traffic in Southwick Square, West Sussex County Council were keen to ensure that the newly installed paving would be protected against factors that can lead to paver destabilisation, such as jointing loss. Furthermore, with the installation of areas catered towards food stalls and eating areas, the client also wanted protection against staining from food and drink.


Having been able to showcase that success of Resiblock at The 02 Arena, were similar concerns of large volumes of footfall traffic and food staining, Resiblock Resiecco was specified to be installed. The product also comes with the added bonus of being part of Resiblock’s Green Range of products, ensuring the same level of joint stabilisation and stain protection whilst actively minimising the effects of sealers on the environment.


Stabilisation of the joint notwithstanding cleaning regimes and trafficking whilst imparting the following additional benefits:

  • Prevents jointing loss from cleaning regimes & heavy footfall
  • Significantly reduces staining by food and drink
  • Virtually eliminates residual staining by chewing gum oils
  • Inhibits the growth of weeds and grass in joints
  • Environmentally friendly – solvent free
