In the early 1960's the site now known as Sussex House was occupied by Jacob's Library in 25 North Street, while 25A and 26 North Street were home to Chitty's Cycle Shop.  By 1963 plans were being drawn up for a new building. Designed by Tyler & Dixon architects of Prior House in Westgate, Chichester the new building was to have a smaller footprint to allow for Crane Street to be widened and was to be named Sussex House.

In 2016 James Wells Architects were commissioned to reimagine a contemporary, inspiring workplace for the first and second floor offices. The old WSCC offices were entirely removed and the building taken back to its concrete frame. Planning permission was granted for new W20 heritage-style steel windows and work started to fit-out the new spaces in October 2017.
