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.





Monks Rec Consultation


Lancing Parish Council, together with many community groups, has been working towards the Monks Rec Improvement Project. Those involved include Keep Lancing Lovely, Lancing Community Bike Project, Lancing Football Club, Lancing Parish Youth Council, Lancing United Football Club, Lancing Youth Football Club, Sussex County Football Association, The Globe Primary School, West Sussex County Council, Worthing & Horsham District Sunday Football League and local experts.
