Local Green Space Designations - Assessment of Sites Proposed

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) introduced a new designation for Local Green Space that is considered special by the local community.

This evidence paper considers the criteria set out by the NPPF and assesses proposed sites against this criteria. The sites have been promoted to the Council by members of the community in response to the Local Plan 'Scope and Approach' consultation carried out between Oct 2015 and Jan 2016. This draft report has been produced to inform the Proposed Submission Local Plan, including the regulation 19 consultation taking place in early 2017. A copy of the draft report can be downloaded below.
