Shoreham Beach Local Nature Reserve (LNR)

Shoreham Beach LNR Management Plan

This vegetated shingle beach was identified and designated as a Site of Nature Conservation Importance (SNCI) in May of 1992. The main interest of the site is its specialised shingle flora, which is a nationally rare habitat type.

The designation of Shoreham Beach as a LNR in July 2002 (and its declaration in July 2006) acknowledges its high natural interest and local importance, and ensures that the site is managed so that the features that convey its special interest are maintained for future generations.

Shoreham Beach is home to a wide variety of users who are often involved themselves in the management and care of the LNR.

Urban Fringe Study 2006

The Urban Fringe Study identifies opportunities and constraints in landscape terms for development in the urban fringe of the district. It excludes land which falls within the South Downs National Park, SSSIs and Ancient Monuments. The Study assumes the principle of retaining the gaps but considers areas of land in the urban fringe in terms of their contribution to the general openness and aims of preventing coalescence through landscape character assessment.  It identifies specific sites which may have potential for residential and employment development.
