Transport and Open Space Planning

Countryscape worked with Manchester City Council and Groundwork to explore the potential for transport and open space development in Wythenshawe. The project involved extensive use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in creating a spatial framework to inform future planning decisions.

Countryscape was involved in the project from the outset, providing GIS consultancy in the form of software implementation, user training and database design. We also supplied various design and print services, such as presentation materials and large-format, thematic maps.

The project proved to be highly successful, to the extent that it was expanded to encompass the whole of the Wythenshawe area.
