Our Work

Our Work

Our Partnership Management Plan 2020-2025 sets out the five-year strategy for the management of the South Downs National Park. It is a plan that sets out to shape the future of your South Downs National Park.

This is a plan for all those with an interest in or influence on the area and in line with our commitment to work in partnership. It has been developed in close partnership with key stakeholders from across the National Park.

The PMP does not contain planning policies. These can be found in the Local Plan 2019-2035. This Local Plan includes spatial planning policies for housing and other development. Minerals and waste planning is covered in detail through the joint minerals and waste plans developed with local authorities.


" The Downs...too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness. "
