In support of the Open Space Strategy, an audit of Aberdeenshire's public open spaces was carried out during the summer of 2008. The findings were subject of a consultation with local communities, resulting in a summary of the quality and quantity of open space in each settlement of over 200 people. Reference should be made to these statements when considering the provision of open space for new developments, as required under the standards in the Open Space Strategy (Appendix 2).
