The brief
Essex County Council owns eight country parks and a heritage site. Working with ECC we were commissioned to review the assets of the Parks and to advise the ECC on management efficiency and innovative ways to give residents access to open spaces, woodland trails and historic parklands as well as offering them an experience.


The task
Vision XS  created an ov
erall business strategy and optimisation plan for all 9 of the country parks run by Essex County Council and helped to identify commercial opportunities to enhance income generation.


The results
The business strategy was a step forward in the parks achieving economically sustainability with the aim of  becoming self-funded within 5 years.
By recommending new,  exciting experiences, we helped to revitalise a tired product into a best “in Britain”  country park experience.
