It’s easy be­ing green

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

LAST week, the long-awaited Ord­nance Sur­vey greenspace map was launched. For the first time, it clearly shows the quan­tity and lo­ca­tion of ac­ces­si­ble green space across the UK. On­line and free—ac­cessed via the OS Maps app or at www. ord­nancesur­vey.co.uk—the new map shows ev­ery­thing from pub­lic parks to al­lot­ments. Some­thing sim­i­lar was re­leased in Scot­land in 2011, which the Ord­nance Sur­vey says was the first of its kind in the world. This new map fo­cuses on Eng­land and Wales and will ‘make it eas­ier for peo­ple across the coun­try to ac­cess green spa­ces and lead health­ier lives,’ says Sci­ence Min­is­ter Jo John­son.
