How often do you visit open spaces in the Wyre Forest? What do you think about the quality of them? These are just a couple of the questions Wyre Forest District Council is asking residents in a survey about the open spaces and recreation areas in the district.

The study is looking at all open space accessible to the public such as parks, play areas, natural green space, allotments, cemeteries and civic space.  It is being carried out by management consultancy Knight, Kavanagh and Page (KKP) on behalf of the council.Wild FLowers Web

The consultation aims to find out how residents currently use the open spaces and what will be required in the future.  The survey findings will be used to help with the development of future strategic planning documents and is part of the review of the Local Plan.  The study will also be used by the council’s leisure services to assess future open space requirements.

Councillor Ian Hardiman, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Regeneration said:

“We would encourage people to take part and give us their views in this survey.  We need to know how people use these areas and how important they are to them, as this will help us shape our open spaces provision and planning documents in the future.”

The survey can be completed online at Wyre Forest Communities Survey

The consultation closes at 5.00 pm on Friday 23 December 2016.
