Landscape and Biodiversity

Landscape and Biodiversity

These case studies relate to the following outcomes of the SDNPA Partnership Management Plan.

Outcome 1: Landscape & Natural Beauty
The landscape character of the South Downs, its special qualities, natural beauty and local distinctiveness have been conserved and enhanced by avoiding or mitigating the negative impacts of development and cumulative change.

Outcome 2: Increasing Resilience
There is increased resilience within the landscape for its natural resources, habitats and species to adapt to the impacts of climate change and other pressures.

Outcome 3: Habitats and Species
A thriving and connected network of habitats and increased population and distribution of priority species now exist in the National Park.


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