'Local Green Space' (LGS) is a national designation introduced by the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). Local communities have the opportunity through the development of the Local Plan to identify green areas for special protection that are of particular importance to them.
As part of the Issues & Options consultation (Oct-Nov 2019), communities were invited to nominate important green spaces for designation in the emerging Local Plan. The Council will assess the submitted green spaces to determine if they meet the criteria for designation, as set out in national policy.
The 'Local Green Space Submissions Report', available to download from the table below, explains the status of Local Green Spaces, the assessment methodology, and lists the green spaces submitted during the Issues & Options consultation.
Full details of individual site submissions are provided in Appendix 2: LGS Submission - Summary Reports.
Important: At this stage no assessment has been carried out. Inclusion of a green space in the report or maps below, does not provide the green space with any additional planning status.
The Council will assess each nominated green space and will publish its findings alongside the draft Local Plan. Green spaces which are suitable for designation, by virtue of meeting all requirements of national policy, will be included in the draft Local Plan as proposed Local Green Spaces.
