Guidance on Recreational Open Space

Fields In Trust, an organisation which campaigns for access to free, local outdoor space for sport, play and recreation, has created an advisory paper for people wanting to create growing spaces. The new guidelines are very similar in England and Wales and give advice to all local authorities on the amounts of different types of green space that should be provided. 

It is a useful resource for projects/groups negotiating with local authorities for new spaces – including community growing. The information is published here courtesy of Fields In Trust.
