Open Space Strategy

North Kesteven District Council is committed to improving the health, wellbeing and environmental sustainability of the District, and aims to work with their partners to achieve this.  Open spaces are hugely important and valuable assets, and are proven to improve public health, wellbeing and quality of life.  They make our communities enjoyable places to live, work and visit, and provide opportunities for people to engage in healthy and active lifestyles.

As part of their commitment to their new ‘Our Environment’ priority, the District Council has produced its first Open Space Strategy.  This Strategy aims to explore opportunities to deliver the quantity and types of open spaces our communities need, and to encourage and promote outdoor leisure participation.  They also aim, through delivery of this Strategy, to increase opportunities for our communities to access our beautiful countryside, and to work with their partners to maximise biodiversity in open spaces across NK.

The District Council aim to formally adopt this Strategy in late 2018.  Before they do this, they would like to hear your views.

A copy of their draft Open Space Strategy is available in the ‘downloads’ section of
