Outdoor Open Space, Sport & Recreation Study

Cost: £16,480.00


​​This report provides details of a study into open space, sport and outdoor recreation (open space) provision in Jersey.

The Island Plan definition of “open space” is as follows:

“Open Space is defined as land used as a park or country park, for open air sport or activity, or land previously used as a cemetery – the definition includes bodies of water within these areas”.

The need for the study was first identified in the 2002 Island Plan Review and forms part of the 2008 Island Plan.

Key areas of the report:

  • assessment of the adequacy of existing open space, outdoor sport and recreation provision on the Island
  • produce levels of any additional provision that will need to be provided, over 15 years (in 5 year intervals) from 2008
  • produce standards that new housing development should meet to provide for the levels of additional provision
  • produce standards for open space provision for schools
  • provide overall recommendations for clear and simple open space policy in the new Island Plan, including a relevant typology for open space types and related land zonings/designations
