We welcome your interest in, and thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on, the proposed Open Space Strategy
The information that you provide will be used to help inform the strategy. Any personal information will be treated in strict confidence and will not be shared with any person or organisation outside Bromley Council or our service provider partner, idverde UK. Comments and observations may be used in summarising any responses gathered during this survey and any individuals personal data will be removed to ensure anonymity.
The aim of the Open Space Strategy is to set out the London Borough of Bromley’s priorities for the use of allocated resources across the Bromley Council owned and managed Open Spaces over the coming years to; conserve and enhance them, maximise the benefit derived from them by communities and users, optimise their contribution to carbon reduction, biodiversity, ecological and environmental targets and, where possible, to generate a return on any investment made.
The strategy additionally aims through a holistic approach to support wider Bromley Council objectives and its legal and statutory obligations
The strategy is available at the Bromley Council website and is divided in to 13 sections. We ask that you read it before completing the survey as some questions relate to its content (eg Section 4. The challenges influencing the strategy, Section 5. Building a Better Bromley (2020) – Key Priorities, Section 6. Key Strategic Strands and Section 7. Strategic Principles, Actions and Projects)
This survey aims to capture your views about the strategy; our approach to the management of the open spaces, the quality of them, the priorities to be applied, proposed action, the benefit that they provide, their use and how they may be improved
Our open spaces are listed at pages 41-47 of the strategy and include; Allotments, Amenities within parks (buildings, cafe's, childcare clubs, exercise equipment, lighting, play areas and equipment, seating, sports clubs and facilities, etc), Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Bridleways, Paths, Public Rights of Way and Tracks, Cemeteries, Golf courses, Historic monuments, Lakes, Open grassland and meadows, Parks, Ponds, Running tracks, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Sports facilities and pitches and Woodland
