Green Space Strategy

Front Cover od strategy documentSouthampton’s Green Space Strategy was adopted in 2008. It supports a vision for Southampton's parks and green spaces that 'Southampton will be recognised as the regional green city, with a range of fine parks and open spaces that are easily accessible, represent good value for money and delivered in partnership with the local community for everyone to enjoy'.

The Green Space Strategy summary and action plan can be downloaded below. It highlights the value of Southampton's parks and contains a ten point action plan on how we aim to achieve our vision.
