Last chance to have your say

by Guest Author Consultation

The public is being urged to make sure they have their say on the Biosphere bid as the last week of the consultation approaches. With over 1600 responses to date, and over 90% support for the Biosphere amongst responses received to date, the consultation is due to end on 22 May.

It was recently extended when the Biosphere boundary was altered to include Southwick and Shoreham and to bring two new areas in near Ringmer. The proposed Biosphere Reserve covers the whole area between the River Adur and the River Ouse, including the sea. To the north it follows the South Downs National Park boundary except around Ditchling. It now has almost exactly the same area as the Isle of Wight.

The Brighton & Hove and Lewes Downs Biosphere Partnership is pleased with the response so far. However, it would like to get more support by next Wednesday if it can. The more support and feedback from the public, the better it will be for the bid. However, it's also important to hear what people value in their local area and would like to see improved. This information will then be used to bid for funding, where possible, to help realise local residents’ aspirations for the area.
