Welcome Back! What's Open?
SUSSEX BY THE SEA IS SLOWLY AND SAFELY OPENING FOR BUSINESS AND FOR VISITS.
Following recent government announcements, some, but not all retail businesses and gardens and visitor attractions have started to open, when and where they are they are able to adopt effective social distancing policies.
More attractions and other hospitality businesses are set to open, where possible over the coming weeks - subject to the latest government guidance.
Who's open - or planning to be soon?
Each attraction and business will have different social distancing challenges and some may not be able to open as quickly as others.
For the safety of visitors, residents, guests, customers and the business owners and staff, please observe the signage and SOCIAL DISTANCING DIRECTIONS provided at each establishment.

LOOKING FOR REASSURANCE?
THE SOUTH DOWNS NATIONAL PARK
The South Downs National Park has it all – rolling hills, glorious heathland, river valleys, ancient woodland, thriving villages and market towns, and the iconic white cliffs of the Heritage Coast. Covering over 1600 square kilometres of England’s most valued lowland landscapes in the busiest part of the UK.
- Restraint in observing social distancing at all times.
- Responsibility for your health and the health of all those you encounter.
- Respect for the communities you visit and the wildlife you encounter, particularly by avoiding the busiest locations.
We look forward to welcoming more visitors to Sussex by the Sea and hope that this is the start of a gradual easing of restrictions, which will increase over time.

IMPORTANT MESSAGES TO HELP KEEP US ALL SAFE
Visiting Our Beaches?
PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL AND SAFE
RESPECT THE WATER!
PLEASE RESPECT THE POWER OF THE WATER
We have recently dealt with several incidents of members of the public getting into difficulties in the water.
This has been frightening for all involved.
Please respect the power of the water and stay safe.
RED FLAGS MEAN DANGER!
RED FLAGS MEAN DANGER
When we are flying red flags on our beaches, DO NOT enter the water!
There are dangerous currents in those areas and we may not have lifeguards on duty.
Take Your Litter Home
PLEASE TAKE YOUR LITTER HOME
If the bins in our open spaces are full, please take your rubbish home, don't leave litter behind.
Why not pack an extra bag to take your picnic or takeaway rubbish home for recycling?
We are working hard to keep on top of things, but you need to do your bit too!
You'll be helping us look after the District so that everyone can continue to enjoy the open spaces. Thank You!
