The strategy should apply toall the open space – not justthat owned or managed by theauthority – and cover parks, openspace, town squares, streets,play space and housing land. Itprovides the evidence, sets thedirection and helps secure undsor investment in open space.The quality o public space givesa strong impression o an area.It is part o what gives a town orcity its identity and it gives localresidents a sense o civic pride– or shame i it is poor quality.Investing in public space is along-term investment in your townand city’s sustainable uture –creating a thriving place wherepeople want to live, visit andwork.
