We are passionate about preserving and protecting the beauty of the South Downs National Park.

We have over 1600 members. There are so many challenges faced by the South Downs National park that to preserve its beauty now and for the future we challenge planning and voice our opinion on matters that will affect it.


We have a bank of District officers who look through all of the planning in the park and a team of access and rights of way officers who ensure that the pathways remain open. We have trustees who look at policy changes that will affect the South Downs National Park.
