Consultation on country parks
A public consultation is being launched on the future of Kent’s country parks.
Kent County Council (KCC) is asking for residents’ views on its strategy for the next four years
Seven of the county’s country parks have just received a Green Flag Award but KCC says it wants to improve and extend its facilities further.
The parks attract 1.65 million visits a year.
The consultation outlines three main aims for the service:
providing a network of high quality and biodiverse country parks;
increasing visitor numbers particularly at off-peak times and among under-represented groups;
ensure the service is as financially self-sustaining as possible.
The consultation is open until Monday, September 11.
Residents should visit www. kent.gov.uk/countryparksstrategy to view the draft strategy and complete the short online survey.
