The council has adopted a revised Salford greenspace strategy supplementary planning document (SPD) that is linked to a supporting document.
Salford City Council recognises the importance of open space to the quality of life and health of local people. Officers have prepared a revised strategy for the city that seeks to ensure that everyone has good access to high quality greenspaces of all types. The document was subject to extensive public consultation before the final version was adopted.
The Salford greenspace strategy supplementary planning document (SPD) provides a comprehensive spatial strategy for the protection and enhancement of green space resource throughout the city. It, among other things, sets out existing and proposed local standards for the provision of green space in the city and a supporting document expands on how these standards are applicable to specific sites. These documents focus on all types of green space found throughout the urban area and urban fringe. These include sports pitches, formal parks, equipped play facilities, country parks, woodland, allotments and other open land as well as the cycle routes, footpaths, canal towpaths and river walkways that connect these areas.
The two related documents should be considered together:
