How Often Do You Use Oxford's Parks?

It's the last day to tell Oxford City Councillors want to know what you think about their green spaces.

It's before they plan for how they'll be protected and preserved over the next twenty years.

There are two consultations taking place:

The Draft Green Spaces strategy looks at how and why parks will be preserved, protected and enhanced.

The Draft Playing Pitches and Outdoor Sports Strategy looks at current and future demand, which will be used in planning decisions.

Councillor Mark Lygo, Board Member for Parks and Sports, says:

"The importance of parks and open spaces should not be underestimated.

"They are crucial for maintaining people’s health and well-being, allowing biodiversity to flourish, contributing to the local economy, providing stronger more engaged communities, helping to adapt to and combat climate change, adding quality to the built environment and protecting our heritage.

"For this reason I encourage all of Oxford’s residents and visitors to get involved in the consultation.

"We want to hear what users and non users of our parks, sports pitches and outdoor sports facilities think of these documents which will help us shape our plans for the future."
