Founded in 2002, the Chichester Harbour Trust is a registered charity dedicated to the protection of Chichester Harbour National Landscape.

We believe the strongest method of protection is by direct control through ownership or long leases, and we strive to achieve this end.


We now safeguard over 375 acres of land across 15 sites, working in close partnership with Chichester Harbour Conservancy, the local authorities and the harbour community.
