Earlier this year, Adur District Council and Lancing Parish Council jointly commissioned consultants BDP, to prepare a Vision Document for Lancing Village Centre and Seafront. This document, once completed, will give a clear direction for the regeneration of Lancing over the short, medium and long term.
Residents and local interest groups have been really interested in the process so far and all comments and feedback received during the last few months has been taken into account in the preparation of the draft Vision Document.
BDP has now prepared an exhibition for people to visit and give further feedback on. The exhibition is very visually appealing and easy to understand so people are invited to come along and take a look. BDP will be at the Lancing Parish Hall with the exhibition on Friday 13th April from 3pm to 8pm and Saturday 14th April from 12pm to 6pm, local Councillors and Council Officers will also be on hand to answer queries and gather comments. The exhibition will then stay in place for the following week so that people can still come along and leave their comments on feedback slips which will be supplied.
Cllr Jim Funnell, Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Adur District Council said, “The Vision for Lancing is coming along really well and we are pleased that the people of Lancing have been very aspiration and vocal about their hopes for the future of the Village. The Vision Document, once completed, will give a very clear picture for the regeneration of Lancing. The Parish, Adur and West Sussex Councils as well as private developers will know very clearly where to direct investment.”
So please come along on 13th or 14th April, see the draft plans and have your say in how Lancing can become a truly 21st Century Village. You can also comment direct to the Regeneration Team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the Regeneration Team on Facebook. The final report will be formally launched on 24th May 2012.
