Lancing Parish Council


Lancing Parish Council was set up in 1894. It covers the area between Shoreham-by-sea and Worthing from Western Road (adjacent to Brooklands) and Sompting in the west through to the River Adur in the east. It stretches from the beach and coast inland to include part of the South Downs.


Working in partnership with the local community to make Lancing a great place to live, work, visit and enjoy.





Message from the Chair of the Council


As a newly elected Councillor and Chair, 2016/17 was a steep learning curve for me. It will be a year that I will never forget for many reasons, not least of all for how hard the Councillors and Officers have worked to continue to make as many improvements for the Lancing Community as possible.


Three priorities were identified at the Annual Village Forum. The accessible pathway from Beach Green Car Park to the toilets has been completed. The Council has streamlined the way it works to enable greater efficiency, and work towards improving Monks Recreation Ground continues. Many other projects have been completed or are still on-going, more details can be found in the Council's Annual Report.


I look forward to another busy year leading Lancing Parish Council in its continued efforts to listen to and act upon the wishes of the Lancing community.


Councillor Gloria Eveleigh

Chair of the Council 2017-2018
