Have your say about green spaces and countryside sites

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all come to recognise the value of local green spaces and countryside sites for our physical and mental health. 

The pressure on these spaces has increased dramatically over the last months with an unprecedented number of visitors, which has implications for the spaces themselves, as well as the council budget. 

As we determine the priorities for the year ahead, please help us shape the way open spaces and countryside sites will be managed. Take part in our online survey to share your ideas. 

Cllr Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said, “Open spaces have played an important role in keeping us active and helping us to maintain positive mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. They will continue to do so in our recovery, and we need to look at how they will be managed to benefit local communities and visitors. Please get involved by completing the online survey.” 

The survey deadline has been extended until 15 August. If you wish, your name will be entered in a prize draw to win an annual National Trust family membership or a joint RHS membership.
