In October last year a ‘Live chat’ session was hosted on this forum on green space issues and tips for engaging communities more in the management of green space. The session was led by Shared Assets – a not for profit community organisation that supports community management of woodlands, waterways, green spaces and coastal areas. The FAQs following that live chat can be accessed in the relevant on this platform or at: http://www.mycommunity.org.uk. You will find that the FAQs touch on issues relevant to this subject, such as protecting open space, where to start, insurances, etc.
Locality and Shared Assets are finalising some more detailed guidance on this topic, which will be released on the wwww.mycommunity.org.uk website very shortly. In the meantime, you might want to look at some guidance that Locality produced in 2010 on the transfer of public space to communities. Although some of the specific opportunities are out of date, the principles remain unchanged. It also includes some inspirational case studies: http://locality.org.uk/resources/community-led-spaces/
