Management planning for community greenspaces.

Saturday 21st October 2017 9.45am to 4.00pm.

Beaufort Hill Community Welfare Hall, Beaufort, Ebbw vale, NP23 5QW

Green Valleys CiC in association with Llais y Goedwig and sponsored by RENEW Wales is holding a free event at Llais y Goedwig community woodland, Beaufort Woodlands on 21st October.

More and more community organisations are taking over the management of valued community greenspaces. Understanding the site, deciding how it should be managed and how to go about delivering that management are essential elements and often daunting for community groups. These elements are drawn together into a site management plan that provides a clear guide to how the site is managed and why. Good management plans help to develop priorities, resolve conflicts, make best use of limited resources and are often essential for grant applications.

Much of the focus will be on community woodlands but topics like wildlife, public access and decision-making will be common to other sites like parks and orchards.
