The Council wants to get more people using, relaxing in and enjoying our open spaces. These spaces include all Council-owned or managed parks, reserves, gardens, cemeteries and beaches.

The Council is responsible for managing the different activities within open spaces and the effects of these activities. Officers have identified some commercial and private activities which are increasing in popularity. Those activities now require clearer management systems, both for the benefit of the commercial operators, and for other users of our open space.
