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.





Monks Rec. Consultation


Lancing Parish Council, together with many community groups, has been working towards the Monks Recreation Ground 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.


A survey was conducted locally in August 2017 to find out what Lancing residents want at Monks Rec. Since then the Working Group has created a brief and conceptual design based on the results. A consultation was held in spring 2018, ending April 2018. The results can be found here

Completion of the renovation work at the Croshaw Recreation Ground Play Area


A real success story has happened at the Play Area at Croshaw Recreation Ground. A makeover has been completed thanks to a joint-funding partnership. Children can now twirl and whirl or spin and spring on the new roundabout, spinner bowl, scooter and sealion springers as well as test their skills crossing the wobbly bridge in the toddler multi-play. These new items have been introduced to complement the existing swings and remaining junior multi-play. The Play Area has also been upgraded to make play safer with all the safety surfacing having been replaced.

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.
