Public sector amenity green space refers to a wide variety of sites that are managed by local authorities for public use, including:
- Public parks, wildlife conservation areas and heritage sites
- Road side verges
- School grounds, play areas, playing fields and sports pitches
- Closed churchyards, cemeteries and crematoria
- Village greens and city centre pedestrianised areas
Amenity green space is essential to the quality of life within your community. Not only does it provide aesthetic appeal, but it heightens the desirability of your area, attracting new businesses and home owners through the promotion of physical and mental health. It also increases sustainability, manages flood risk and helps to promote community identity.
