Keyhaven River

Keyhaven River lies within an area of coast that is unspoilt and of great value to many interests. Keyhaven has a large extent of sheltered water, which makes it suitable for teaching youngsters sailing and canoeing, and a great wealth of nature conservation and landscape interest. Keyhaven is within the boundaries of the National Park.

In our work here we also need to be aware of what impact any proposals may have on local roads and the village environment.
