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.

Members’ Code of Conduct

National Park Authorities have a duty to promote and maintain high standards of conduct by Members and Co-opted Members. Section 27 of the Localism Act 2011 came into force on 1 July 2012 and as a result, the South Downs National Park Authority has adopted a revised Code of Conduct for Members and Co-opted Members from that date.

The Authority has adopted procedures for the Handling of Complaints received under the Member Code of Conduct.

For ease of reference, the complaints handling process is also shown on a Complaints Handling Flowchart.
