What we do

Open Space Planning and Design

The design of individual parks, other open spaces within the parks and the open space network should be based on the identified values of the land, the neighbouring land uses, (including opportunities to borrow from them), the existing and future characteristics of the intended users, and a contribution to the long term sustainability of nature. Our love of parks begins very early in life and by the time we go to school most of us will have identified a special park that will be the focus of our pleas to mum, dad and the grandparents to take us there week after week.

The directors and staff of Savage Consulting believe that every park should be developed in such a way that it has the potential to be someone's favourite, whether through the play equipment installed, the constructed landscape features or the opportunities to observe nature.
