Strategy & Planning
Strategic thinking is a core skill in our team whether that involves looking at an entire local authority green space portfolio, helping an organisation to think about its future or working to make projects more sustainable in the long term.
Green Space Strategies
We have developed sophisticated mapping techniques, demographic analysis, quality and value assessments and combined these with a range of consultation techniques to help authorities think through the best way forward in managing their green space assets.
Under the old best value regime we undertook service wide reviews and have often linked these to green space audits and strategies. We have also helped organisations in the third sector to review where they are going and restructure / refocus accordingly.
The income generating potential of commercial elements within a large scale restoration / regeneration project is key to financial sustainability of so many schemes. Also as local authorities look to different models for managing green space and heritage assets a robust business plan is vital.
