Beach Green Car Park – Auto Number Plate Recognition system update
14th January 2019


Unfortunately, the ANPR system was introduced earlier than advertised and District Enforcement Ltd, the Parish Council's car park contractor, would like to apologise for this error and subsequent inconvenience.


All vehicles that genuinely paid to park and received a Penalty Charge Notice will have these voided if they contact DE directly - Email: or telephone: 01785 336780.


However, anyone who did not pay to park will have to appeal the charge. Signs have been up since December but more importantly, the pay and display system has been in place for 3 years and car park users should be well aware that by not purchasing a ticket, a parking charge will be incurred.

Sussex Police funding 2018-2022

Sussex Police funding 2018-2022


Sussex Police have started the biggest intake of new police officers for over a decade. This has been made possible by the increase in police precept of an average £12 for a band D property, and the PCC releasing £17 million from reserves. It means that over the next four years, Sussex will have 200 more police officers on the frontline than it does today.


Although residents are pleased to hear that local policing will be strengthened by these 200 extra officers, they are already indicating that they would like even more. That is why the PCC has opened a survey on her website to gauge potential support for raising more funding locally if the Government lifts the current cap on the police precept.

In respect of an article recently published in a political newsletter, the Parish Council would like to confirm that it has NOT closed the public toilets at Monks Recreation Ground. The toilets, located at the entrance to Monks Rec from North Road are very much open between 9am and 3pm, and include disabled facilities by use of a RADAR key.


The toilets are owned and managed by Adur District Council and were given an internal refurbishment not so long ago.

Bins on Beach Green


Adur District Council has provided 8 additional wheelie bins to Lancing Parish Council to help combat the amount of litter created from visitors to Beach Green and Widewater. It is hoped that the number of bins now present will be sufficient to address the issue of overflowing bins that arose last weekend, which is then made worse by wildlife, such as seagulls and foxes, raiding and scattering rubbish further afield.
