Greenspace Survey

A team of researchers from UWE Bristol are conducting a survey to investigate how social distancing measures have changed the way that residents are using green spaces and connecting with nature in the West of England.

The greenspace on behalf of WECA, UWE has created a survey to examine people’s use of greenspace under lockdown (and a few other features of their home). 

‘‘For decades, green spaces have been seen as a luxury in town and city planning with many existing parks lacking maintenance – perhaps that needs to change. By carrying out this survey, we can begin to understand the value and contribution that green spaces make to public health and wellbeing and use that information to inform future planning.’’
