8.2 Hierarchy of Open Space


Recreational space is provided in parks of various sizes throughout the county ranging from regional parks and major local parks down to smaller pocket parks, private gardens and balconies, as well as intensive recreational, amenity and community facilities such as active Multiple Games Areas (MUGAs).  This Plan aims to achieve a hierarchy of high quality, attractive and secure public and private open spaces.

In the Waterford Metropolitan Area, the Southern Regional and Economic Strategy has included an objective for the preparation of a Metropolitan-wide Open Space, Recreation and Greenbelt Strategy.  The Council will cooperate and participate in the preparation of such a Strategy, in co-ordination with Southern Regional Assembly, Waterford City and County Council and relevant stakeholders.
