This strategy considers urban space to be a fundamental part of the infrastructure of towns and cities; a resource which is much more all-encompassing than traditional view that it simply comprises a limited typology of discrete sites such as parks, sports grounds and city squares. Urban space is understood here to include all the non-built up land within and around urban areas, forming a matrix of space which connects inner urban areas with the surrounding landscape.
