Cheltenham Borough Council's vision for green spaces is: 

"Working together to ensure a comprehensive network of attractive, well used and valued locally distinct green spaces, that are accessible, safe and welcoming, which meet the existing and future needs of the community, improves / enhances biodiversity and are managed sustainably to reduce climate change impact."  

This is the first time that a comprehensive strategy for the borough's green spaces has been developed and, as such, is a landmark document that joins-up the various elements of green space provision and management with strategic land management, sustainability, biodiversity, and resilience to climate change.
