Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRS) are a new initiative being rolled-out across England to help reverse the decline in UK species and urgent, locally coordinated efforts are needed to reverse this decline. In Sussex there will be two strategies - one covering West Sussex and another for East Sussex and Brighton & Hove.

At the heart of every LNRS will be environmental issues that are most important to local people.

Working in partnership with local authorities, including Horsham District Council, the team will focus on environmental issues that are most important to local people to identify the practical and achievable actions that can be taken to deliver them.

Share your views

Tell us what's important to you: your favourite places to experience nature in Sussex, the wildlife you love to see, and whether you’ve noticed any changes (good or bad) to habitats and species locally. You don’t have to be an expert to take part!

  1. Residents are invited to complete a Sussex Nature Recovery public survey. The views you share in this survey will be added to a list of priorities for nature’s recovery.
  2. Organisations and businesses who are actively involved in nature’s recovery are also invited to share their views to help capture any existing priorities or places for nature these groups are concerned with.
  3. Are you a landowner or business with land that could be better utilised for nature? Take this short survey to let the Strategy team know.

All surveys close on 30 June 2024
