Message from the Chair

 

Welcome to Lancing Parish Council's website. Lancing is the largest village in the country, and we are always happy to welcome new residents, visitors and holidaymakers. Situated on the south coast between Brighton and Worthing, with the beautiful South Downs as our backcloth, and good rail and road links, Lancing is an easy and enjoyable place to visit.

 

We are currently in the process of regeneration and, in partnership with Adur District Council, 'The Lancing Vision' has been produced. Following extensive public and stakeholder consultation, the Vision is a document outlining how we want our village to look in the future.

 

Lancing Beach Green, situation directly north of the beach, is considered to be Lancing's entertainment hub and offers a large green space for picnics and games, a children's play area, a health and fitness area, a barbeque area, a refreshment kiosk, an inviting restaurant, a gym, beach showers and modern and well maintained public toilets. It will soon also boast a new skatepark.

 

Lancing Parish Council aims to:

  • Make its community the focus of all it does
  • Listen to, and communicate with its residents in a wide variety of ways
  • Find ways to constantly improve its business acumen in its provision of high quality and cost effective services for its community
  • Support and work in partnership with voluntary and independent organisations for the betterment of everyone living in, working and visiting Lancing
  • Promote 'ownership' of and pride in our Village by identifying and harnessing the skills, knowledge and experience of its residents, and in so doing nurture and strengthen its community spirit
