Greenspace in Cornwall – less than you think!

Yesterday we looked at how much greenspace there is in Cornwall – all told 91% of the area is greenspace.

But this overestimates the extent of countryside as some of the green spaces consist of parks and other elements of the urban areas. They may be green but definitely are not countryside.

Taking out the urban areas of Cornwall reduces the maximum area of countryside to about 89% of the land area!
