Re-thinking out outdoor spaces

thank you for re-thinking our open space

Thanks to over 1,600 people who have taken part in pop-ups, workshops and online activities. This consultation is now closed.

You've told us about your current use of open space, and future outdoor space needs in the MidCoast.

We're now working on a draft Open Space and Recreation Strategy using your input.

We will ask you for your feedback again once the draft strategy is ready. This is likely to be in mid-2023.
