Sussex Marine and Coastal Forum

The SxNP also works closely with the Sussex Marine and Coastal Forum, which aims to promote a sustainable approach to the management, use and development of the Sussex Coast and Marine Areas.

In 2022, Sussex Wildlife Trust, with input from SxNP, obtained funding from the Environment Agency ‘3Cs’ initiative (Championing Coastal Collaboration) for a piece of work which set out to understand the “perceptions, activities, priorities and frustrations” of stakeholders in the coastal sector in Sussex. This work started a process to identify a vision and set of priorities for the sector. The final report was published in May 2022 and can be downloaded here.
