Open Space Audit

The consultancy PMP were appointed in late 2007 to assist with an update to the existing Public Open Space Strategy (adopted June 2001). The updated study has now been completed and may be downloaded below.

The updated study is compliant with PPG 17 (Sport & Recreation) and assesses in detail the existing open space, sport and recreation facilities in the Royal Borough in terms of both quantity and quality. It makes recommendations for new open space standards. Areas where deficiencies in provision exist have been identified and areas of search for new sites have been identified to help improve provision.

The study also examines the extent of the linkages between existing open space / sport and recreation areas and looks at the opportunities to protect and enhance the extent of those linkages.
