EWPC Neighbourhood Plan Consultation
Local Green Spaces (LGS)

What are the Criteria?

All the sites proposed have been testing against the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) Criteria set out in Paragraph 102, which says that Local Green Space designation should only be used where the green space is:

'a) in reasonably close proximity to the community it serves;

b) demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquillity or richness of its wildlife; and

c) local in character and is not an extensive tract of land'.

What can I do?

Review the proposed Local Green Spaces and tell us your positive or negative comments. You could give us further examples of how the space is used by the community or its value and importance, alternatively you may suggest why it should not be designated, for example it has limited community value and say why or how.

What Happens Next? - Consultation opens on 9th September 2021

Edith Weston Parish Council will consider all the responses after the consultation closes in 12 noon Friday 1st October 2021 and then make a final list of those to be designated as Local Green Space in the Neighbourhood Plan. For further information visit:edith-weston-lgs-audit.html
