Green Space Designation

“Local communities through local and neighbourhood plans should be able to identify for special protection green areas of particular importance to them……”  (NPPF Paragraph 77)  (NPPF Extract in Open Day handout)

Results from January 2016 Open Day questionnaires

The bar chart indicates the preferences recorded. The longer the line the greater proportion of votes that field received, representing that field’s level of importance to our community.

Green Spaces Chart

The colours on the bar chart are replicated on the map. The higher the preference, the darker the shade of colour. Coloured areas on the maps are approximate and are for general indication of the field’s location. Colours do not define the boundaries of any field.

Green Spaces

Hatched fields indicate there is an issue with interpreting questionnaire responses in that area. See note below.


Hatched areas: The ‘Green Spaces’ questionnaire asked people to “Refer to the ‘THREE display boards with areas marked green”. These maps are shown below (click each map to enlarge). The following three field numbers were ambiguous as they indicated different total areas of land on each map. The ambiguous areas of land are hatched in the map above. Subsequent consultation will clarify this anomaly.

Field 423: Green Fingers and Green Separation Corridors showed part of the field, while Green Entry Corridors showed the whole field.

Fields 554/553: Green Fingers showed the fields combined, while Green Separation Corridors identified the fields separately.

Field 535: Green Separation Corridors identified an individual field, while Green Fingers included the field to its north.
