Open Space Strategies

Open Space Strategies: We have produced open space strategies, covering provision like parks and gardens, amenity greenspace, allotments and children’s play. Some examples include:

  •  We were appointed by Gravesham Borough Council to carry out a comprehensive assessment of all open space provision in the borough.  The result was a strong, evidence-based assessment fully compliant with PPG17 and related guidance.
  •  A Green Spaces Strategy for the Cherwell District Council that involved a review of a recent PPG17 study in the district and required the analysis, amendment and application of proposed standards, the recalculation of current and projected future deficiencies and devising the basis for inviting developer contributions.
  •  An Open Spaces Study for Tendring District Council in Essex. The project involved an analysis of the local, regional and national strategic context, an audit of all sites in the district, the development and application of planning standards and identification of deficiencies in provision.
