Shaping the future of our countryside access

Latest

Following the latest Government advice all of our rights of way sites and countryside parks are open, but some facilities are still closed.

The following car parks are open:

  • Seven Sisters Country Park – both car parks
  • Ditchling Common – car park
  • Ashdown Forest – Pooh car park, off Chuck Hatch Lane in Hartfield Parish
  • Broomhill Sands – car park
  • Camber Sands – Rother District Council’s Camber Western, Camber Central and Old Lydd Road car parks

The following remain closed:

  • Seven Sisters Country Park – visitor centre and public toilet

Our Countryside Access Strategy sets out our plans for the future management of our countryside sites.

Ownership of three of our countryside sites will be transferred to other not-for-profit organisations:

  • Seven Sisters Country Park will be transferred the South Downs National Park Authority
  • Ouse Estuary Nature Reserve and Riverside Country Park will be transferred to Newhaven Town Council.

All other sites will continue to be managed by us.

If you have any questions about the changes to countryside sites please email StrategicCommissioning@eastsussex.gov.uk
