Gloucester looks for views on city's green spaces
By Rob Freeman | 7th August 2020
Gloucester City Council is asking for people's views on the future of the city's parks and open spaces.
The consultation covers the council's draft Open Spaces Strategy which sets out ambitions for more than 200 areas of public open space across the city for the next five years.
Among the areas covered are green spaces, allotments, cemeteries, Robinswood Hill Country Park and Alney Island Nature Reserve.
It includes opportunities for people for getting involved in caring for local green spaces.
The strategy contains ways to tackle the effects of climate change and biodiversity loss, such as increasing tree planting and creating and maintaining more habitats for plants and wildlife.
Council leader Councillor Richard Cook, cabinet member for environment, said: "The draft strategy is an important document that sets out how the city council plans to protect, manage and enhance parks and open spaces over the next five years and beyond.
"I would really encourage residents to get involved with the consultation and let us know their thoughts."
