and Open Spaces
The Environment and Leisure sections of our draft plan recognise the fundamental importance of protecting the town's green assets
In addition to formally-defined parks and gardens like the Priory Grounds and King George Playing Field, Ware features a rich diversity of informal breathing spaces, from the Post Wood at one end of the scale, right down to much smaller pockets of communal land in front of blocks of flats.
We believe that our Neighbourhood Plan can play an important role in protecting as many of these spaces, formal and informal, as is humanly possible - this green patchwork is absolutely fundamental to Ware's character; and as a community asset, it's hugely important to the health and well-being of the town's residents.
We hope you agree. So, what should be in our inventory of green spaces? You can access a comprehensive montage of pictures here or by clicking or tapping on the main image.
