David Telford, Director at Hurleypalmerflatt and a practising environmental psychologist, strongly believes that open space has a human amenity value.
He asserts that open spaces have the capacity to meet a “pyramid of human needs.” This pyramid includes the need to feel comfortable, the need for leisure/exercise, the need for social interaction, and the need for aesthetics.

" The public realm affects our humanity and our enjoyment of life. The totality of civic space is what matters, not just a few good buildings. Everyone should be able to enjoy open, public space.

Creating and maintaining good open spaces can help to generate civic pride.”
