Green Space Means Health

The NEP commissioned work that was completed in 2015 to maximise community use of target green spaces in areas of high multiple deprivations in the Buckinghamshire towns of Aylesbury, Chesham and High Wycombe for public health and well-being outcomes. Our consultants worked with the communities surrounding the target green spaces in each of these areas to identify the practical action that was needed to improve the use of the sites.


Three reports covering target green spaces in Aylesbury, Chesham and High Wycombe, including detailed action plans to increase access, awareness and use of the green spaces by the whole community. An executive summary of the aims of the project, its methodology and findings can be found here:
