What is Hart's Green Grid?

Last year Hart District Council adopted its Vision to 2040. This Vision includes the ambition to create routes between all towns and villages to encourage walking, cycling and other forms of sustainable healthy transport. As well as connecting communities together, there is an opportunity to connect people to existing green spaces and other key destinations. These links and green spaces collectively will become Hart's Green Grid.

Hart’s Green Grid will encourage walking and cycling as well as creating wider opportunities for active recreation and leisure, with potential benefits to local ecology and biodiversity.

Please contribute your thoughts on the Green Grid by completing this survey. For information on how the Council will use any personal information we collect and the Council's Green Grid Consultation Privacy Notice please click here.
