The Brighton downland sale is not the only one.
A huge area (nearly 4000 acres) of fabulous downland that currently is managed for wildlife and with unparalleled public access is being sold by Eastbourne town council. As this was bought for the people of Eastbourne through public subscrption in 1926 it is shocking that such a sell-off is even contemplated. This, the very eastern end of the south downs is exceptionally rich in plants and invertebrates. The future potential for landmark conservation initiatives is even greater. The Eastbourne downland is contiguous with National trust and East Sussex holdings stretching unbroken from Eastbourne to Seaford. All this potential will likely be lost if it is sold off.
