Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

About the ChaMP Project

Brighton ChaMP for Water was established to protect and improve the quality of groundwater in the Brighton Chalk block, to ensure it remains a sustainable resource for public water supply.

The project is a collaboration between the South Downs National Park Authority, the Environment Agency, Southern Water, the University of Brighton and Brighton & Hove City Council, working together with Natural England and the Brighton and Lewes Downs UNESCO Biosphere (the Living Coast) to protect the aquifer. We plan to create more partnerships with councils, landowners, community groups and businesses as the project progresses.

Our work involves:

  • Providing practical advice and improvements to land management in the urban and rural area
  • Raising public and land-manager awareness of groundwater protection
  • Undertaking research to increase knowledge of the issues and monitor the project’s success
