An independent strategic coastal partnership

Sustainable Swanage

Sustainable Swanage was established as part of the town’s ongoing efforts to become a more sustainable community and protect our precious environment.

Our mission is to positively support the community of Swanage in reducing its waste, with an emphasis on plastic, but we have since expanded our work to include biodiversity, energy, transport and food waste. 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.

We have one part-time staff member, Sarah Spurling who facilitates and supports the different projects and campaigns, and is the central point of contact. There are a growing number of volunteers involved in the group at varying levels and to suit their interests.

You can contact Sarah at:

sarah.spurling@dorsetcouncil.gov.uk (Sarah’s working days are Mondays and Tuesdays)

The Sustainable Swanage website is currently being improved and will be available with more information soon.
