If you visit or live near the River Adur, the Adur River Recovery Project want to hear from you!

This project team aims to create and enhance the wetlands and restore habitats to improve this historic Sussex river and they have set up a public consultation to hear your views.

Project benefits will include:

  • Improved water quality
  • Reduced impact of flooding
  • Improve resilience to climate change

Supported by Horsham District Council, Adur District Council, Knepp Wildland Foundation, Ouse & Adur Rivers Trust, Sussex Wildlife Trust and Wilder Horsham District, this project is one of only 22 landscape recovery projects in the country.

It is vital that the project team hears from local people who visit and live near the river Adur to find out how people access the river, how they use it, and what they think and feel about it.

The survey (link below) has 26 questions and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

The closing date for comments is Monday 7 August.
