Cllr Jess Brown-Fuller, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Chichester District urges everyone who hasn’t yet accessed this scheme to do so to help achieve the district’s environmental goals.

Since launching in January 2021, nearly 25,000 trees have been planted across the district with the aim of restocking felled areas and increasing wildlife habitats.

“This is an amazing initiative with community action at its heart. The loss of trees has been felt across the breadth of Chichester constituency, from ash die back on the South Downs to the coastal erosion experienced at Chichester Harbour AONB, which is also being negatively impacted by the persistent sewage discharges by Southern Water. What this scheme provides is a tangible way for residents to take action and positively impact the local environment,” said Jess Brown-Fuller.
