Environmental Landholdings

A number of sites within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are managed by the Conservancy in partnership with the landowner, local community and volunteer groups. 

Several sites have been bought by, leased to, or donated to Chichester Harbour Trust. We work closely with the Trust and we manage some of these sites on their behalf. We also offer conservation advice for sites that we do not manage directly. 

Sites that we manage include:

Birdham Reserve, Birdham
Chidham Bund, Chidham
The Dell, Chidham
Maybush Copse, Chidham
Stakes Island, Cobnor
Beaky’s Wildlife Area, Dell Quay
