University of Kent are conducting a survey about the use green spaces

A university postgraduate cohort of students at the University of Kent (studying Conservation) are working on Ecotourism module entitled “reconciling recreation and conservation in Southern England”. Their aim is to understand how recreation and conservation initiatives can conflict with one another, and identify avenues/recommendations for land management strategies to help reconcile these issues.

They have visited various sites across the South Downs including WWT Arundel, Chichester Harbour Conservancy, Old Winchester Hill and Slindon estate, gaining information from land managers, but are interested in the public’s input as well….. They have completed in-person data collection from members of the in Chichester and Brighton, but would like to reach a wider audience of users of countryside spaces in the South Downs

Please see the below details of the survey (ends on 18th March 2022)


They want to know how often people interact with their local green spaces and the factors that influence green space use.

Answers are anonymous and they will not ask for any private or identifying information. Answers will only be used for the purpose of the study.”
