Sustainable Swanage's founding mission was to positively support the community of Swanage in reducing waste, with an emphasis on plastic, but we have since expanded our work to include biodiversity and energy. We provide a link between different local organisations and groups and are working together to find solutions to issues that affect our local environment.

We provide a central point of information for the community on these issues and provide a means of sharing good tips and connecting people. We are a positive group looking to the future and how we can all live more sustainably and become resilient to future stresses and challenges that we face in our community.

Downs Local Nature Reserve

The area known locally as the Downs in Swanage is being proposed as a new Local Nature Reserve for Swanage. This will be an exciting opportunity to enhance a local facility for nature, residents, and visitors.

This project is being undertaken by Swanage Town Council in partnership with Sustainable Swanage including a growing number of local volunteers. So far surveying and mapping the site has been carried out for the site's habitats and wildlife.

How can I be involved?

A local group of people committed to being involved in the site will be set up as a ‘Friends Group’ and we will seek to involve members from all age groups and areas of the town.
