The overarching vision for the Country Park is underpinned by the positive impact that the outdoors and nature can have on our mental health and emotional well-being, through the notion of 'creating Healthy Infrastructure' delivering 'a park for life'.
Good health and wellbeing are fundamental to enable us to live an active and fulfilled life and plays a role in our local communities. The healthy living design principles underpinning the Country Park Framework will work harmoniously to positively impact upon residents mental and physical health, bringing people closer to nature.
Four underlying interventions which underpin the Country Park Vision and start to form the landscape framework include, Diverse Landscapes, Active Landscapes, Community Landscapes and Productive Landscapes.
