Landport Bottom Management Committee

Landport Bottom, previously owned jointly with Lewes District Council (LDC), is now owned outright by the Town Council.    Day-to-day the site is managed by the Lewes District Ranger and, following the transfer of ownership, this service continues under contract with LDC. This Downland site has a number of aspects which make its management less straightforward than an urban park or sports facility and there is a high level of interest and practical involvement from within the community.  A standing Landport Bottom Management Committee is therefore established as:
  1. Landport Bottom Management Committee comprises eight Members, with a remit:
    1. To conserve and enhance Landport Bottom as an important feature of the local landscape
    2. To increase biodiversity by appropriate habitat management
    3. To protect and conserve the Scheduled Ancient Monuments; Registered Battlefield site, and other important historical features.
    4. To promote quiet, informal enjoyment of Landport Bottom by the general public.
    5. To involve the local community in the development and management of the site
    6. To increase the understanding and awareness of the importance of the site, amongst local people and visitors.
    7. To manage the site with the Health and Safety of the visitors, staff and volunteers as a high priority.
    8. To manage stock with the highest welfare standards.
    9. To maintain current fixed assets to high standards.
