The Blue Heart project survey

Closed 2 May 2022

Opened 21 Feb 2022


Over a six-year period from 2021 to 2027, The Blue Heart project seeks to work with the communities of Eastbourne and South Wealden to co-deliver a project to provide an understanding of the local water levels and how they interact with the environment and the community. The project will mitigate the impact of flooding in the local area caused by climate using technology to manage and monitor water for the benefit of communities and businesses.

Why your views matter

We are eager to learn who is using water and interacting with water bodies, watercourses and the drainage system so that we can understand everyone’s thoughts and feelings about flooding here in the community. This is key information which will improve the co-delivery of the project and parts of the information provided may be used in an academic research study.

Your participation in this study is entirely voluntary. You are under no obligation to supply personal data and can withdraw consent for us processing this personal data at any time.

We would be very grateful if you would fill out this short survey to help us get going.

We look forward to meeting and working with your community to celebrate Blue Heart with events and activities. For more information on this project please contact the Project Manager Anna Hastings ( or lead engagement researcher Dr Kate Baker (
