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. 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.


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

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.


Widewater Water Levels


The Parish Council works in partnership with West Sussex County Council, local residents' conservation group the World of Widewater (WoW) and Shoreham and District Ornithological Society to manage the local nature reserve known as Widewater Lagoon. The Environment Agency also provides advice and assistance when necessary.


Widewater is a land locked tidal lagoon and reliant on an Environment Agency mitigation pipe for the flow of water into the lagoon. Inside the pipe are boards which can be removed or inserted to help with water levels.


WSCC officers monitor the lagoon on a regular basis and, whilst previous high tides were anticipated to ease the low water level situation that started to occur a few weeks ago, this unfortunately was not the case and the situation has become much more of a concern. The EA therefore removed the pipe boards last week before the high tide that was due last weekend and the boards will remain out until after the next high tide cycle this month at the least.


The EA also plan to be on site at the mitigation pipe chamber on Monday 9 July to remove any recent build-up of shingle from the chamber and pipe; the next high tide cycle starts Tuesday, 10 July. Routine monitoring will then continue as previously described.
