We ran two open space surveys between 18 October and 8 December 2017 - one for adults and one for primary school aged children. The surveys were to help audit existing open spaces in West Lancashire, including parks, recreation grounds, allotments, nature sites and play areas. We will use the findings of these surveys to produce a report which assesses open spaces in the area, identifies standards of provision, and make recommendations for the future. We expect the Open Space Study to be completed by March 2018. We will publish the final report at that time.
