World of Widewater propose to create an Eco friendly Visitor and Education Centre at Widewater to replace the present booth. It would be an Eco building blending into the environment. It would incorporate seating and viewing facilities for nature observation, new toilets and possibly refreshment facilities. It would provide information about the local wildlife and it is hoped that educational activities promoting care and concern for nature and the environment will take place from the centre. The project is intended to benefit the whole community and visitors to the area. The project will form part of the Lancing Vision Scheme.
The committee of World of Widewater (WOW) are proposing that we are the lead partners, working with preferred Architects (through a tendering process) and Lancing Parish Council to raise the necessary finance and build a new visitors/education centre to replace the current booth and surrounding area at the east end of the lagoon.
We are at the very early stages. Before pursuing this aim it is essential that, as members of WOW your views are expressed and gathered.
We stress that the ultimate aim of this proposal is to enhance the natural beauty of the lagoon.
