Parks and Greenspaces Strategy consultation
We are now asking you to help us inform how Haringey's parks and greenspaces will be managed and developed in the future.
The consultation will run from 29 September until 27 November 2022.
Parks and greenspaces are an important part of daily life for many Haringey residents.
They are used for a wide variety of reasons such as walking, meeting friends, enjoying nature, playing and volunteering and can help us to be happier and feel healthier as well as helping our living environment by improving air quality and absorbing heavy rainfall.
The council has been developing a Parks and Greenspaces Strategy to inform what the priorities for the future of parks and greenspaces should be.
The strategy has an overall vision and 3 key strategic aims:
- inclusion and wellbeing
- climate change and sustainability
- a quality service
It includes a number of documents that address different aspects of parks and greenspaces in Haringey such as for biodiversity, trees, volunteering and community engagement as well as a range of proposed new policies covering areas such as dogs in parks and toilet provision.
What are we consulting on?
The council is seeking feedback from residents, businesses, partners and stakeholders to help inform how parks and greenspaces will be managed and developed in the future. The strategy will cover a period of 15 years between 2023 to 2038.
We would like feedback both on the overall vision and aims, and about the actions proposed in the plans and policies.
We have prepared some documents that seek to describe the challenges faced by the council in managing parks and greenspaces and the actions it proposes to take in the future to address and overcome these challenges.
