An industrial and business estate takes up the easternmost part of Bersted - in common with most of the country business tends to refer to their post town Bognor Regis and includes a superstore. Some of this area is in the town's boundaries.
Shripney, in the northeast, has evolved from a thirteenth-century hamlet. It lies on the A29 road 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Bognor Regis. It has the Robin Hood pub on the Shripney Road. In Shripney Lane, there are over forty dwellings, including thatched cottages and caravans. The most recent change to Shripney Lane was when modern houses were built in 2004.
