Local Green Spaces Consultation

Following the call for Local Green Spaces earlier in 2021 the Steering Group is running a public consultation on eight sites that were nominated to be designated as Local Green Spaces.

The Criteria for Local Green Spaces set out in National Planning Policy Paragraph 100:

The Local Green Space designation should only be used where the green space is:

  1. In reasonably close proximity to the community it serves;
  2. Demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of it’s beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquillity or richness of its wildlife; and
  3. Local in character and is not an extensive tract of land

The sites can be found on this Interactive map
