We have received the following email from Medway Council regarding their current survey of Open space usage
We’re asking residents for their views on public open spaces in Medway, such as parks, play areas and allotments.
An updated open space assessment is required as supporting evidence for Medway’s emerging Local Plan.
What the study is
Management consultancy, Knight, Kavanagh & Page (KKP), have been appointed by Medway Council to carry out an assessment on Medway’s public open spaces.
Public open space provides opportunities for sport and recreation, socialising, tourism and wildlife. They make an important contribution to the health and well-being of communities, ecosystems and economies.
Up to date information is needed on Medway’s open spaces. This is to ensure that there is suitable provision of accessible, high quality open spaces that meet the needs and aspirations of local communities, local people and people who work in or visit the area.
How to get involved
KKP are running a survey asking residents for their views on public open spaces in Medway.
It will provide valuable information that we’ll use to inform both the new Local Plan and also investment decisions as part of an up-to-date strategy for public open spaces.

The survey closes on Monday 1 May 2023.
