Will inmates have outdoor activities?

There will be no outdoor activities outside of jail. There are outdoor spaces on the interior of the building. These will be a larger space that is laid out in a more efficient way and means all of these can be provided in a more efficient manner. For example, to get to an exercise area currently, inmates have to ride an elevator to a different floor and walk through the building to the outdoor space. So, some of their time out of their cell is wasted in travel. The proposed new plan places inmates closer to the facilities and services.
