Chapter 15 Policies and Proposals for Open Space Typologies

(1) 15.1 Intended Outcomes

  • To develop a series of AIMS or Visions for open space that support Corporate Priorities
  • To develop objectives that support the AIMS for each typology of open space
  • To clearly state objectives that will show what we will do and how we will do it.
  • To show who is responsible for delivery and by when.
  • To indicate the costs of delivery and risk to the Authority

Approach

15.2 A number of AIMS or Visions have been previously outlined, and shown again in table 8 below, as part of this review. These aims support the Corporate Priorities. It is proposed to develop objectives that detail what we want to achieve to support each aim.

15.3 It is proposed that the aims, objectives, and details about how, when and who is going to deliver the objectives will form the action and delivery plan.

15.4 Details will need to be given concerning how the objective will be resourced. Consideration should be given to the burden on revenue through the Grounds Maintenance and other Council budgets, or whether volunteers and additional external funding can be used to resource the objective.
