The Salford greenspace strategy supplementary planning document (SPD) identified the following local standards:
Definitions for each of these local standards are available in the Salford greenspace strategy SPD. This document also identifies existing sites that meet one or more of the local standards and proposed sites to be improved.
The table below shows how Salford is performing against the local greenspace standards. Updates will appear on this page when available to show how the situation has changed over time.
Since April 2006 the level of greenspace has generally improved particularly for district and neighbourhood parks. The monitoring demonstrates that improvements in the level of provision are restricted by an increase in the number of residential properties in the city.
A partial review was completed in 2011 and a detailed review was completed in 2007. A summary of each review can be found in the downloadable documents section at the bottom of this page.
