This guide has been produced as part of the Community Ownership and Management of Assets (COMA) programme by Shared Assets – ‘a think and do tank that makes land work for everyone’. Shared Assets was a delivery partner in the COMA programme and this guide draws upon their experience of supporting many of the green space focused projects that took part (listed in Appendix 2).
There are two main groups of people who may find this guide useful:
- Local authority officers and members considering the future of their parks and green spaces, including those looking to the community to play more of an active role in their management
- Community organisations, Parish and Town Councils and social enterprises considering taking on new responsibilities for parks and green space management.
