Your Voice – Your National Park


We are in the exciting final stages of creating a Partnership Management Plan for the South Downs, setting out the priorities for everyone who lives in, works in, and visits the National Park. This is an important strategic document containing policies to ensure that iconic landscapes and wildlife are enjoyed, valued and cared for, and that communities and the local economy thrive.

Many of you may already have been involved with helping us shape the Partnership Management Plan, either through surveys, workshops, sending us a ‘Postcard for the Future’, contributing to the on-line forum or talking to us at shows and events.

For others it may be the first time you are reading this material, and this will be a chance to see if you agree with the work that has gone before.

The final draft of the South Downs National Park Partnership Management Plan is now available for consultation and we are seeking your views on this document.

The public consultation, ‘Your Voice, Your National Park’ will run until 16 September 2013.

This is your chance to let us know if you think the Partnership Management Plan will take the National Park in the right direction, and also to tell us how you might be part of this journey.

To take a look at the plan, and give us your views please go to

We are encouraging people to respond electronically if at all possible to save paper, but if you prefer to receive a copy of the Management Plan and survey by post, email your name and postal address to or write to us at :-
