Public open space consultation

Public open space consultation

We asked residents, businesses and interested parties for their opinions on public open space in the borough.

Chesterfield has a variety of public open spaces - from the Chesterfield canal towpath to small local play areas and the larger parks such as Queen's Park.

Public open space provides opportunities for sport and recreation, socialising, tourism and wildlife, making an important contribution to the health and well-being of communities, ecosystems and economies.

We need to understand who is using public open spaces now, how often they are used, the quality of those spaces, how people get to them and what they are being used for. 

By understanding our public open space as it is now, we can make sure that in future we have a good mix of different sites across the borough that meets the needs of our local communities and visitors.

The consultation ran from Monday 16 April 2018 to 5pm on Friday 1 June 2018.
