Community Facilities Strategy
Having quality community places and spaces is important and helps attract talent and visitors to live, work and play here. We want more from our facilities in the right places at a price we can all afford.
We've made changes to how we provide and manage our community spaces and places - like our arts facilities, sports areas, pools, parks and street trees and gardens, cemeteries, public conveniences and art in public places.

Background to the consultation
In September 2017 the community had the opportunity to feedback on our general approach and draft summaries with some options.
From that feedback we prepared draft plans and a strategic framework including guidance for investing in facilities.
