Designation of Local Green Space – Call for Sites
From Sutton-in-Craven Parish Council
An opportunity exists for communities to put forward areas of green space for consideration for designation as Local Green Space in either the Craven Local Plan or in Neighbourhood Plans prepared by parishes.
This is a new area of local planning, offering communities the opportunity to identify areas of green space which are of value to them because of the wildlife they are home to, their beauty, their cultural or heritage significance, the tranquility they provide or their recreational value. If designated in the Local Plan, Local Green Space Designations would be protected from inappropriate development.
Craven District Council is inviting sites to be put forward to be assessed for their suitability as Local Green Space Designations in the emerging Local Plan for Craven over a 6 week period from Wed 21st Oct to Wed 2nd December.
Please refer to the item on the news page for details and to download an application form.
