We asked

We are trying to find out what you think about Sheffield's parks, green spaces and woodlands

You said

The data hasn't yet been fully analysed, however it is forming a crucial part of an open space project which is been carried out via an external organisation through Regeneration and Development Services and will influence the work we do here at Parks and Countryside moving forwards. We will be utilising feedback to help us plan park improvements and will be looking at the survey in more detail in the coming period.

We did

Where improvements are proposed for sites e.g. project work – we have been utilising site specific comments to influence plans and to identify customer need.  Where customers have provided their details we have been able to contact them with further surveys and information which directly relate to their local area (looking at postcodes). Maintenance and management tasks have been carried out as a result of some comments (e.g. review of footpath and encroaching vegetation at Beighton Marsh and Sheffield Standard reassessment)– including forwarding of some suggestions / comments to the Public Rights of Way Team for action / information.



The Sheffield City Council, Parks and Countryside Service manages parks, woodlands and green spaces across the City.
