Green Space Strategy

Our Green Space Strategy sets out the standards we aspire to for our parks and open spaces in Horsham District. It provides a focus for the management and improvement of space and focuses on publicly accessible areas that we own.

Our vision is to provide, protect and enhance a publicly accessible network of diverse and quality green spaces that meet the need of our community
