Old Chalk New Downs

Chalk grassland is one of Kent’s most threatened habitats and the project aims to address this through the restoration and creation of chalk grassland and other down-land habitat in areas where it has existed historically and in areas which will ensure greater habitat connectivity. The project area covers almost 10,000 hectares and stretches from Kemsing Down to Detling Hill.

 

The OCND Project bid states that people have become ‘fragmented’ from their natural environment. The project aims to re-connect the local community to their Natural Heritage by involving them in the project through a range of activities from practical work, educational workshops, monitoring and survey work to attending events or joining a new walking group or led walk. The project will help the local community learn more about the Natural Heritage on their doorstep, give them the opportunity to learn new skills and to socialise and improve their health and wellbeing. Through raising the local community’s awareness and understanding of their Natural Heritage and instilling a sense of ownership we hope to help address the negative behaviours which can lead to misuse of the countryside.
