Canterbury online survey gauges parks and open spaces for new strategy

A new parks and open spaces strategy is being formulated by Canterbury City Council.

The open spaces strategy for 2009-2014 will look at what improvements can be made to parks in Canterbury.

Canterbury City Council is now looking for responses to an online survey examining its local parks and green spaces.

The Canterbury Open Spaces Strategy survey must be completed by 16 February.

Issues that came out of a stakeholder event held last year were:

  • Existing parks and gardens need to be protected
  • More allotments are needed
  • Outdoor sports pitches need to be improved
  • Green corridors need to be protected from development

Results of the online survey will be published in March.

I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.
