Thanks to support from Defra, WENP has developed a suite of maps identifying accessibility to green space across the West of England, and best opportunities to target efforts to improve such access and reduce inequalities.

The maps model catchment areas where residents are able to access open green space within a 300m walk (roughly translating to a 5 minute walk).

Accessibility to green space is important due to its significant implications for our health and wellbeing at a time of increasing mental ill health, cardiovascular disease and an ageing population.

We hope the maps provide a helpful baseline from which to improve, and help start more conversations about how we can work together to provide more and better quality green spaces for the benefit of everyone in our region.
