Invitation to Open Space Audit event on Th 25 Jun at 18:30
City of Edinburgh Council is currently consulting on an open space audit, which forms the first stage of preparing an open space strategy. This is the most comprehensive look at open spaces in the city in over 40 years.
They are holding a public workshop at the Gillis Centre, 100 Strathearn Road, on Thursday 25 June, 6:30 - 8:00pm to check the accuracy of the draft audit and find out what people think about the provision of open space, its quality, and possible ideas for enhancing or changing open space in the South Central Neighbourhood Partnership area or farther afield.
The strategy will set standards of open space provision across the city and inform future planning decisions affecting open space. It will also help set priorities for changing and enhancing open space over the next five years to ensure these standards are met. There will be further consultation on the next stage of the project - the draft strategy and action plans - earlier next year but in the meantime they are keen to hear our views.
