A great, green environment

Our town benefits from having a wide range of parkland and recreational spaces for everyone to enjoy. Our nature reserves are an important asset to the town and are home to a fantastic range of wildlife. An Andover that enhances its green and recreational spaces and nurtures its natural environment is really important to the future wellbeing and sustainability of the town. We have an opportunity to make the most of future investment into the area, and give the town the parkland and recreational spaces that will cater for the population now and in the future.

 

Our big ideas for the next 20 years:

  • Make the River Anton a focal point within the town as a place that the community can enjoy and where wildlife thrives.

  • Improve recreation facilities and acquire new green spaces and parkland as Andover grows.

  • Cultivate community interest in Andover’s diverse wildlife and biodiversity in order to help protect it.

  • Encourage and grow community-led projects where people and groups play an active role in nurturing and promoting green spaces and parkland.

  • Let’s all play our part in making the established and new communities in the town greener and more beautiful places.

What will success look like?

  • Andover will be recognised as a beautiful place to live and visit.

  • Andover’s environment will contribute to the well-being of residents.

  • Residents will feel encouraged to volunteer and support the town’s natural environment.
