The site is important for wildlife and for local residents, with footpaths and a community orchard.

This successful acquisition will enable us to further enhance biodiversity and ensure that Bramber Brooks will continue to operate as a well-loved green space for people to enjoy into the future.

The site is already well-used by local people and has strong links with the community through schools and scout groups. The Council looks forward to working with locals to take forward the management of the site.

The purchase underlines our commitment to addressing the climate and ecological emergency and will support our drive to achieve net zero carbon emissions for the District as well as nature recovery.
