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.
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

Police Forces across England & Wales are using a new system called Single Online Home (SOH). This is a policing portal which allows the public to easily report crimes, incidents and information online.
The police non-emergency phone number 101 remains available if personal contact is required. However, using SOH significantly reduces wait times for those reporting crimes or incidents, or if you simply wish to provide some information to the police. Reporting online via SOH is easy and effective. It has been positively endorsed by a number of Neighbourhood Watch members who have had the opportunity to use it.
The new portal can be found on the home page of the recently updated Sussex Police website www.sussex.police.uk. In addition to the Report area, here you will find a new box "Tell us about …". There is a drop down from which you can select, for example, "Something you've seen or heard".
We have given you this information as we know that some people are rightly cautious about clicking on links in E-mails. However, there are some shortcut links available as below, which we have tested for you.
If reporting a crime or incident which has occurred in Sussex, SOH is available directly via https://sussex.police.uk/contact-us/report-online/. You can scroll further down that page to see other options.
If reporting a crime or incident which has occurred outside of Sussex, SOH is available via https://report.police.uk.
If it's something that you've seen or heard the link is https://www.sussex.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/soh/something-youve-seen-or-heard/.
SOH should not be used for an emergency - dialling 999 remains the means of contact if there is danger to a person or if a crime is being committed.
All reports submitted via SOH will receive an immediate acknowledgement message. Reports are reviewed in live time, and within 48 hours Sussex Police will provide a personal response from a named staff member.
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.
