Have your Say on the SNP Government's Open Spaces Strategy


Open spaces, green infrastructure and outdoor places to play are key components in successful placemaking, helping to create pleasant, liveable, healthy and resilient communities.


As per its manifesto and the Programme for Government, the SNP Government is looking for views to help shape its strategy to deliver its '20 Minute Neighbourhoods'.


This is a concept designed to improve people's quality of life by increase equality, open space, green infrastructure, and play opportunities as a key part of placemaking.


Kenneth Gibson MSP said:

"Particularly after the pandemic, it is important to ensure as many people as possible have access to spaces where they can unwind, but also where they have amenitiesd in the vicinity.


"This will help encourage people to go out and look after their health, but also to interact with neighbours and others within the community.


"Now is the time to help shape the basics so I encourage everyone to read the consultation paper and participate."

The consultation is open until 06 April and you can make your views known via this link.
