Chiltern and South Bucks Open Space Strategy

Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils are currently developing a new Open Space Strategy. The key aims of the strategy are to:

     i.     Inform and support the newly emerging Chiltern and South Bucks Local Plan to provide a concise, robust and comprehensive evidence base that enables both Councils to develop   planning policies which are sufficient to withstand public scrutiny.

     ii.    Increase participation by key community organisations to develop a co-ordinated approach to effectively manage recreational and open space provision.

     iii.    Achieve a joint Council strategy with localised priorities to develop sustainable facilities that support increased participation

     iv.    Support community groups and others to access external funding

The open space assessment includes public parks and gardens, amenity greenspace, allotments, community gardens, recreation grounds (where applicable), accessible areas of countryside on the urban fringe, cemeteries, civic spaces and natural and semi-natural green spaces.

Both Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils would welcome any feedback regarding the draft Open Space Strategy at

Closing date for feedback is Monday 22nd April 2018.
