Woodland Opportunity Mapping


This project was developed in partnership with Lewes District Council, Clean Growth Hub and University of Brighton (GIS student placement).  It customised a framework for mapping constraints and opportunities for woodland creation across Lewes District. This pilot project was completed in 2021.

In late 2021, The Woodland Trust and South Downs National Park Authority funded a project to extend the above work across the wider Sussex and South Downs National Park area and to work with additional stakeholders to refine the outputs. This project is nearing completion and a link to the final map and project report will be provided here once published.
