Periurban Parks Project (2010-2012)

PERIURBAN is an INTERREG IVC project, which uses interregional exchange of experiences to improve policies on management of natural periurban areas.

PERIURBAN focuses specifically on policy and management solutions to mitigate pressures on biodiversity.

Focus on the creation and management of parks in natural suburban areas, in line with European environment policy and redevelopment in suburban areas, can impact positively on the environment and on halting biodiversity loss.

The Common Methodology&Toolkit is a support tool for public and private organisations involved in the creation and/or management of periurban parks.

The document presents the key points related to obstacles and solutions in creating and managing periurban parks:

· Policy and Regulatory

· Management

· Environmental

· Social and Communication

· Cultural

· Funding and Economic

· Infrastructure and Accessibility.

This document is supported by an “interactive guide”, which allows users to access targeted advice for their particular park.
