Good governance and management ensures the many public benefits of green infrastructure are maximised. Historically most publicly accessible parks and green spaces have been publicly owned and managed for the public good. More recently, pressure on public finances and greater community involvement in public services has led to increased private and community sector involvement in public green space governance. This chapter outlines three broad models of governance, with varying degrees of public sector involvement highlighting key issues, advantages and disadvantages of each and some successful examples. It considers how stakeholders can work in partnership to manage public green spaces and how governance can operate at different scales across an area from site based to state wide. The chapter then reviews three key aspects of governance; funding, skills and management approaches, focusing on the impact of current resource challenges and considering future trends, concluding with a summary of the findings.
