Mr Bennett has now secured permission to change an empty laundrette into a new licenced premises.

The bid won the backing of Lancing Parish Council in a last-minute turnaround, and was given the green light by Adur Council planners on June 10.

Mr Bennett said: “Thank you to Lancing Parish Council for listening to the residents and having the good grace to think again and support us.

“But mainly to a big, big thank you to the residents of Lancing for their overwhelming support for us, and for taking the time to make their feelings known to the council.”
