The purpose of the document which can be found by following the link below is to define the appropriate strategy for the planning, development and sustainable management of public open space in Fingal.
Currently there is no defined strategy within the Council for prioritising open space management and maintenance. This document brings together in a coherent way existing policies and practices and introduces new and innovative approaches to public open space.
A key concept in the strategy is understanding open space as part of Green Infrastructure. This Strategy seeks to improve open space provision through
better management and to outline qualitative standards for the provision of existing and future open spaces.
The main focus of this Open Space Strategy is publicly owned and/or maintained land, the primary use of which is for outdoor recreation and amenity in Fingal.
