The Sheffield Green and Open Space Strategy sets out a vision for the city's parks over the next 20 years.
The principal aims the strategy over the next 20 years are:
- A visible improvement in the quality and safety of local green and open spaces, recognisable to residents and resulting in greater participation.
- Communities participating actively, getting involved in management and decisions on their local spaces.
- An even greener Sheffield — contributing on a regional scale to managing climate change and conserving biodiversity.
- Sheffield firmly established as a national centre of excellence for green space management.
Director of parks and countryside Mary Bagley told HW: "We see parks and open spaces as an asset for the city."
The councillors agreed the plan during a cabinet meeting outlining the green strategy.
