NEWS FLASH - Cliff Gardens

In October 2023 we received unanimous approval from councillors of our Cliff Gardens project planning application. LDC was then charged to apply for road closure of part of Cliff gardens in order for the project to be completed.
On Mar 8 2024 the Secretary of State gave notice of a proposal for road closure to vehicular traffic. Notices were put up on site by LDC.

PLEASE SUPPORT THIS ORDER so that our educational and biodiversity garden can be created.

Any person can SUPPORT OR OBJECT to the making of the proposed road closure order by stating their reasons by email to the Secretary of State by clicking here, or in writing to:
National Transport Casework Team,
Tyneside House,
Skinnerburn Road,
Newcastle upon Tyne
quoting the reference NATTRAN/SE/S249/5651 whichever means you use.

Correspondence must be received by midnight April 5, 2024

More details of  the project can be seen on the project’s page

We are one of ten partners in the Ouse Valley Climate Action Lottery Bid

We are thrilled that the South Downs National Park‘s bid to the National Lottery is providing funding for volunteers to progress our Climate Action Projects in our area. We have a high risk of flooding and of suffering from theĀ  severe effects of climate change.

Volunteers will lead in planting more trees and renaturing grass verges and local green spaces. A climate change educational beach garden will be created by volunteers (including students) who will transform an un-made-up road and an adjacent field in to the garden. Long term plans will be progressed to enlarge the Ouse Valley Nature Reserve adjacent to Newhaven’s industrial areas. Cycling will be safer and easier and more cars left at home. As well as directly increasing biodiversity, the funding will act as a catalyst for community action and increase awareness on what can be done to minimise its impact.
