The council has completed an assessment of the provision of open space, outdoor sport and recreation in Welwyn Hatfield. The study assesses the quality, quantity and accessibility of open space facilities in the borough.

The study covers amenity green space, allotments, cemeteries, children's play areas, outdoor sports facilities, natural green space, parks and gardens, green corridors, and civic spaces. It will be used as background information to inform future planning policies and the suggested standards will be subject to review as open space is tested and scrutinised by public consultation.

The Assessment of Open Space, Outdoor Sport and Recreation was reported to the meeting of Cabinet Planning and Transportation Panel on 15 June 2009. The assessment and appendices can be viewed under Related Media.
