Local Wildlife Sites in Sussex Looking after Local Wildlife Sites FAQs


Is there a system for proposing new Local Wildlife Sites?

If you know of a site which you think would meet LWS selection criteria, you can help by encouraging recording on the site (where access is permitted) and sharing your records with Sussex Biodiversity Record Centre.

You can find out what data Sussex Biodiversity Record Centre already holds for a particular site by submitting a request to their data request service:
