Brighton & Hove Play space Assessment

Recently, Groundwork GIS provided substantial GIS and statistical analysis to a project identifying where savings in maintenance costs for Brighton & Hove playparks could be made. This was achieved by analysing 52 play areas under a number of criteria including the overlap in walking catchments for times of 1,5 and 15 minutes – calculated using ArcGIS Network Analyst – and ancillary data such as local deprivation and 0 – 15 year old population numbers. These criteria were weighted accordingly and each park was given a rating – these values were combined to produce a rank for each park. This allowed conclusions to be generated that both cut maintenance costs for Brighton & Hove council and restricted closures of parks that would have large impact on local communities.
