Local green space

National Planning Policy Guidance states that local communities should be given the opportunity to identify green areas of particular importance to them through local and neighbourhood plans. If an area is designated as Local Green Space it would have a high degree of protection from new development. Importantly national planning policy makes it clear that this designation should be consistent with wider planning policy for the area and should complement investment in the provision of new homes.
