Wiltshire Council are undertaking a collaborative piece of work that they are seeking your assistance with. Approximately four years ago, Wiltshire Council collected data related to open space provision in your area and the input was invaluable. However, it is really important that the records the Council has are brought up to date so that they can accurately inform two significant emerging strategies. Click here to download the survey. Once completed email to spatialplanningpolicy@wiltshire.gov.uk before 31st March 2020. You can also pop in to County Hall to see the team and they can print a copy off for you. You can also leave the completed form with the team at Trowbridge Information Centre, which will be passed on to the Town Clerk and Chief Executive.

The data collected will be used to understand the current provision of existing open space within the county and will form part of the evidence base necessary to underpin a new Green Infrastructure Strategy and an Open Space Strategy.

If you wish to read about the subject, Natural England’s Green Infrastructure’s Guidance page has a downloadable PDF which describes Green Infrastructure.
