Lancing Vision

About Lancing Vision

Lancing Vision - small

In early 2012, Adur District Council in partnership with the Lancing Parish Council commissioned consultants BDP to prepare a regeneration vision for Lancing.

Following extensive public and stakeholder consultation, the final vision document was formally presented in late May 2012. The vision sees Lancing becoming a vibrant village, an exciting seaside visitor destination and a place that provides for the needs of the community.

Lancing's North Street of the future?

The next step was to set up a partnership between West Sussex, Adur District and Lancing Parish Councils to start things moving in Lancing. The aim was to capitalise on the momentum that the Vision created and start attracting investment into the Village. It is essential that we involve as many community groups and stakeholders as we can in the decision-making process over which projects should be prioritised from the Action Plan.

Lancing Shop Front Improvement Grant Scheme

When Lancing was unsuccessful in its bid to be a Portas Pilot Town, all was not lost. A £10,000 grant was awarded to them as a Town Team partner, which was topped-up by a further £10,000 from Adur District Council. The Lancing Shop Front Improvement Grant Scheme was launched, with businesses in the village heart of Lancing invited to apply for their share of the grant to smarten up their shop fronts.

Eligible businesses can apply for grants of up to a maximum of £1,000 which cannot be more than 50% of the overall cost of the project. Businesses and property owners of commercial premises within Lancing’s Village Heart are eligible to apply for grant assistance to improve the frontage of their buildings.

The objectives of the programme are to:

  • refurbish dilapidated buildings
  • encourage investment in Lancing Village Heart
  • support businesses
  • create jobs
  • bring vacant properties back into commercial use

To apply to the scheme for a grant and for further information about the conditions of the grant including our recommendations for improving your shop front, please refer to the following documents:

All applications and enquiries should be addressed to:

Queensway and Queensway Parade Regeneration Scheme

As part of the delivery of the Lancing Vision strategy, which was produced in 2012 in partnership with Lancing Parish Council, a major facelift for the Queens Parade and Queensway area of Lancing has now been completed.

The new public space provides a relaxing place for people to sit and for cafes to provide additional outdoor seating. There is also a more open, less cluttered feeling to the area and an improved electricity supply so that events and markets can be held there.

The scheme was completed in early 2015 and a celebration day, which included a village market, children's entertainment and activities, plus live music, was held on Saturday July 18th 2015. The Chairman of Adur, Cllr Carson Albury, officially welcomed everyone to the celebration and declared the new public space ready for business.

Lancing Beach Green Toilets

A key objective of the Lancing Vision is to establish a lively seaside destination at Beach Green. A major factor affecting the perceptions of Lancing was the quality and appearance of some of the buildings as well as the public realm. The public toilets were highlighted as being in need of refurbishment, with the opportunity to provide improved disabled access and facilities.

The refurbishment works were completed in June 2015, with the previous concrete shell providing the basis for the new and improved seaside beach hut look.
