The Fenland Open Space Index (FOSI) is a tool created to evaluate public urban green spaces in Fenland market towns. It considers factors such as accessibility, nature, infrastructure, and amenities to quantify the quality of green spaces. FOSI aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of spaces to inform decision-making and improve the quality of life for residents. The evaluation can identify areas that need improvement and can guide future development plans to ensure adequate and suitable green spaces. The FOSI assessment can also be used to compare different market towns and identify best practices in providing quality urban green spaces.
