PEOPLE in Kirklees are being urged to spell out their views on the area's parks and playing fields.
The plea came as a debate opens on the use of open spaces.
A survey will ask:
* Are there enough open spaces, outdoor sports facilities and playing pitches?
* Are they well looked after?
* Can everybody get to them and make use of them?
Kirklees Council is seeking answers as it decides how open spaces and outdoor leisure should be developed and where priorities should be.
The survey will have particular emphasis on the Lindley, Denby Dale and Heckmondwike wards.
It will concentrate on parks and public gardens and natural and semi-natural green spaces, such as woodlands and scrubland.
Green corridors, such as disused railways, are included.
Also featured in the debate are water courses, outdoor sports facilities, children's play areas, green space in housing developments, allotments, cemeteries and churchyards.
The council is working with sport and leisure consultants PMP on finding people's views.
PMP will be undertaking consultation over the next two months.
The company said e-mails should be sent no later than Friday, January 30, to openspaceinkirklees @pmpconsult.com
Letters can also be sent. They must go to the Freepost address, Response Service No NWW8693A, PMP, Brunel Court, Gadbrook Park, Northwich, Cheshire CW9 7ZX.
