Local Green Spaces - Call for Sites

The Council is carrying out a review of its Local Plan, which will shape development within the Borough up to 2038. This creates an opportunity to identify potential new Local Green Space designations and modify existing ones.

The designation of land as Local Green Space allows communities to identify and protect green areas of particular importance to them. Such spaces would need to be:

  • in reasonably close proximity to the community it serves;
  • demonstrably special to a local community and hold a particular local significance; and
  • local in character and not an extensive tract of land

We carried out a call for sites to be submitted for consideration as proposed Local Green Spaces.

This consultation is now closed and sites are being assessed.
