Consultation has concluded

What is the Parks and Green Spaces Strategy?

The Parks and Green Spaces Strategy (PGSS) sets out a vision for Bristol’s Parks and Green Spaces over the next 15 years to 2039, and replaces the existing strategy, which was published in 2008  

The Parks and Green Spaces Strategy includes green spaces that are managed by the council’s Parks Service and land that is open to the general public to use for recreation.  

The Parks and Green Spaces Strategy identifies key actions to ensure that the city’s parks and green spaces continue to contribute  to people’s health and wellbeingrespond to the ecological and climate emergencies and provide greater opportunities to grow food.  


Why are we consulting? 

We would like your feedback on the draft strategy before a final version is adopted. We want to hear from as many people and organisations as possible; including Bristol residents, and individuals who work in or visit our parks and green spaces for education, leisure, sport or health and wellbeing. We also want to hear the views of community groups, businesses and developers  anyone who has an interest in the future of Bristol’s parks and green spaces. 


Have your say 

This consultation was open from 11 December 2023 until 22 January 2024.


What happens next? 

All responses to this consultation will be analysed. The feedback will be used to help develop an updated version of the PGSS. A decision on whether to approve the updated PGSS will be made by Bristol City Council’s Cabinet in early 2024.  

Once approved, the PGSS will inform the way the council works with stakeholders, responds to requests from community groups and business, and manages its parks and green spaces over the next 15 years.
