Trading opportunities

Our green spaces offer a wealth of opportunities to generate income which can then be reinvested into essential parks maintenance and improvements.

Our open spaces deliver various income generation opportunities; for us to operate a sustainable parks service we need to maximise this income while providing a great service to our residents. Our Consultants, Acorn Allen Tourism, are developing a new strategy for our trading activities, focusing initially on some ideas for our Pilot Parks. That strategy will be finalised in early 2021.

We hope that park cafés become destinations of choice, with the revenue generated from visitor spending going directly towards maintaining those parks.

Social enterprises, such as volunteer-led cafés will also have a place, both in generating vital revenue but also helping to create community hubs that further benefit local people.
