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 and the parish of Coombes to the north. 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.






Boat Winch on Beach Green


Fishy goings on in Lancing!


A new information panel has been added to Lancing Parish Council's Heritage Trail that allows residents and visitors alike to find out about Lancing's once vibrant fishing industry. With the help of Lancing and Sompting Pastfinders, West Sussex Records Office and the Lancing History Facebook group, the information panel describes the days of old when there were numerous fishing vessels involved in the trade. A renovated boat winch has also been re-installed alongside an existing winch to add to the details of the panel.

Refill Lancing Launch Event
9th October 2019


View the associated document


Refill Lancing went live on 8th October with its launch at Lancing Parish Hall with over 80 people attending for films, talks, presentations and information stalls. The event was hosted by the Chairman of Lancing Parish Council, Cllr Lydia Pope supported by Francesca Iliffe of A&W Councils, Joel Hufford of Southern Water, Mala Nathan of Refill South-East and Claire Potter of Surfers Against Sewage.


It was organised by Wendy Peters of the community group, Keep Lancing Lovely, together with Lancing Parish Council, supported by Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council. Among those attending were Cllr George Barton, Chairman of Adur District Council as well as West Sussex County Cllr Ann Bridges and several District and Parish Councillors.


Since Lancing embarked upon the Refill journey early this year, Wendy has signed up more than 25 local businesses and community organisations to the Refill Scheme's App, which sees them offer water stations to allow the public to top-up reusable containers on-the-go rather than buying single-use bottles.


Southern Water, Surfers Against Sewage, West Sussex County Council's Waste Team and Ouse and Adur Rivers Trust as well as local community groups World of Widewater, Sustainable Sussex, and Worthing Climate Action Network were among those in attendance at this event. These organisations had stalls and their attendance created a great atmosphere so greatly contributing to the success of the launch of Refill Lancing. Another great effort by a great community champion, Wendy Peters. Congratulations and well done, Wendy!

Beach Green Lighting Project
8th April 2019



Many comments are received regarding the lack of lighting on Beach Green. The Parish Council had considered installing promenade lighting (possibly extending as far as Widewater) but this has proved too costly.


However, there is an alternative option - to install lighting from the path at the southwest corner of the Car Park, along the back of the Car Wash running south towards The Perch and kiosk, along to the central path, to switch on at dusk and automatically switch off at a nominated time. There would be the ability to add to the scheme in the future.


We would like to hear your views on this suggestion. Please contact the Parish Office to let us know whether you support this section of Beach Green being lit.
