Local Green Spaces

· The Neighbourhood Plan gives the opportunity to propose sites for designation as Local Green Spaces

· Local Green Space designation is a way to provide special protection against development for green areas of particular importance to local communities

· The green space is in reasonably close proximity to the community it serves

· The green area is demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value, tranquillity or richness of its wildlife

· The green area is local in character and is not an extensive tract of land
