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.

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.
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.
