Respondent: Woodland Trust

Representation Summary:

The Council could explore options for allowing the community to take on management or even ownership of open space which the Council no longer requires. This may be particularly useful in the case of semi-natural greenspace or woodland, as it could allow local people to continue to enjoy the greenspace and the benefits to wildlife to be maintained.
