In autumn 2017, the Department of the Environment launched an online survey to find out how people get to, and use, open space in St Helier.
The information will be used to inform a new St Helier Open Space and Public Realm Strategy. The strategy is being developed as part of the Strategic Plan (2015 - 2018) to regenerate St Helier. Key areas of the survey included:
- people's views on their favourite park, square or green space
- what sort of open space people would like in town in the future
- travel and access to open space
- people's views on children's play areas and beaches
- the demand for allotments
- access to the rural parts of St Helier
The survey was open to all Island residents and ran for a period of two months. The survey was only available online, so the Department offered assistance to anyone who wanted to complete it, to ensure that everyone who wanted to take part could do so.
All survey entrants were also offered the chance to be entered into a prize draw to win £100 of shopping vouchers. The winner has been contacted separately.
