Open Spaces Strategy

Give your views on Kettering Borough’s open spaces!

Local people encouraged to take part in consultation on Open Space Strategy

Kettering Borough Council is consulting with residents, local business and visitors to help them create a new Open Space Strategy. The purpose of the strategy is to identify the needs of the Borough and to ensure that there is adequate open space provision both now and in the future. Open spaces include local parks and gardens, like Rockingham Road Pleasure Park, play areas, allotments and natural green space such as Desborough green space, as well churchyards and cemeteries, civic spaces, and green corridors.

Knight, Kavanagh and Page (KKP) has been appointed by Kettering Borough Council to develop the new Strategy. KKP has a proven track record of producing such strategies. The final document will become part of the evidence base used to inform the development of the Borough’s Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan. As part of the consultation program KKP has also been consulting local community groups and sports clubs to make sure that their views are reflected in the strategy.

The Council is keen to hear from residents, local businesses and visitors to the Borough with their views on open spaces and how they use them. As such, local people are encouraged to complete the online survey which will help shape the picture of open space across their Borough.
