It has come to my attention via my financial adviser that my Pevensey Bay property lawyer is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to check?

We're in Pevensey Bay, First time buyers buying with a mortgage (lender is Co-operative , and our lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
We are selling our house in Pevensey Bay and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Pevensey Bay. We have lived in Pevensey Bay for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

I have been advised by various friends to expect six to eight weeks for Pevensey Bay conveyancing to complete.This was four weeks ago. The property information was only received to my property lawyer a couple of days ago so does the clock start running now?
You need to be pragmatic about timescales. Moving home in Pevensey Bay usually takes about two months. This time period is not because solicitor are slow and deliberately delay matters. The level of money involved in buying any residence is so high, the purchaser's property lawyer needing to carry out a wide range of queries, searches and other checks to protect the purchaser and their lender (if there is to be a home loan) from expensive, avoidable problems. These checks involves obtaining information from a range of different parties, for example other conveyancer, local councils, private companies, lenders. Some of these are well organised. Plenty aren't. Finally, it doesn't matter how quickly your conveyancer do their part, if the people you are buying from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can go ahead until they are up to speed.
