Open Space Strategy 2009 - 2014

Swale's Open Space Strategy has been developed in accordance with best practice, national policy and the Local Development Framework to provide a strategic framework for the future management of the Borough's open spaces. It covers a five year period between 2009 and 2014.

The result of this work serves two purposes. It guides the authority in the development of a strategy for future development of different types of open space, and it also serves as evidence to support the Council's requirements for contributions from developers where planned developments create an additional demand for different types of space.

The Open Space Strategy findings are drawn from a comprehensive technical assessment that assesses the quality, quantity and accessibility of open space in the Borough in accordance with Planning Policy Guidance Note 17 (PPG17).

The strategy is therefore supported by the accompanying PPG17 audit and assessment report and associated appendices.
