We want to provide external spaces which are valued by our customers and make a positive contribution to the environment and the wellbeing of our communities.

To do this, we will:

  1. Develop an estates management policy to provide external spaces which contribute to our customers and the environment .
  2. Establish processes for assessing the potential uses for all public open space such as play and community growing, in partnership with local communities.
  3. Explore opportunities to involve our customers with service charging, disposal of assets, community asset transfer and meanwhile use of land.
  4. Work in collaboration with stakeholders and customers to promote biodiversity across our estates.

We want to maximise the impact we have in our communities and embrace the opportunities as a key anchor organisation in Bridgend within the foundational economy and will work within the remit of the Value for Money Strategy to support the local supply chain.
