A seafront and town centre could be set for a radical overhaul.
Town hall chiefs have been appointed to carry out research and create a vision to regenerate Lancing.
The commission, which has been paid for by Adur District Council and Lancing Parish Council, will be carried out by consultants BDP, which has conducted similar work in Littlehampton, Worthing and Shoreham.
Locals and businesses are now being asked to get involved in the project which could shape the area’s future for a number of years.
Jim Funnell, Adur’s cabinet member for regeneration, said: “Lancing needs a clear direction and action plan for regeneration and the ‘Vision Document’ will enable residents and businesses to direct where the councils’ and the private sector invest in the village in the coming months and years.”
It is anticipated that the final document will be ready by the end of April.
It is hoped the document will guide planning policies, encourage private investment and earmark certain sites for regeneration.
