Charity information

Chichester Harbour Trust

The Chichester Harbour Trust exists to protect, conserve and improve the natural beauty and wildlife habitats of Chichester Harbour and its setting.

It does this by acquiring land that may be threatened through over-development or poor management and ensuring that it is conserved appropriately, working with fellow landowners for the overall benefit of the local landscape and wetland habitats.

Chichester Harbour is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention.

Formed 5 years ago, the charity now has nearly 200 acres of land within its care and is building up a fund that will allow it to act decisively to protect any part of the harbour threatened with damage through misuse.
