Its great to be near the sea and close to the Downs too. Littlehampton itself has a lot of "rough" areas and the town centre is very lacking in decent shops. Rustington is a nicer area, although very much geared towards retired people (although this does mean that it's very quiet!). There are some ok areas on the outskirts of Littlehampton (i.e. the new Hargreaves estate), but stay clear of Wick - very rough.

A simple break down:
localised - many amenities, sports centres, clubs,
Many industrial sector jobs
Small feel to localised communities
small tow centre for shopping facilities
High youth crime rate
Only good for new property investment (great if you want a new home!)

I have been living here 5 months now and I love it. Close to local shops and good train and bus links to larger shopping areas eg Chichester and Worthing. Mostly bungalows down my Rd, so views of the South Downs over the top. I walked my 4 yr old grandson to the neach in ten minutes. I love it that it goes quiet after about 9am in the Summer. I guess younger people seek leisure further afield. The people are so friendly, I had at least two couples introduce themselves to me when I first moved in, and plenty others stopped to chat when I was cutting the grass. Previously I lived in my old house in London 32 years and only knew my immediate neighbours! There are bound to be good and bad people in all walks of life, nowhere is perfect but for me, Littlehampton (which was not my first choice of place to live), has turned out to be pretty good almost idylic.
