unstar this property answer text <p>Our National Planning Policy Framework states that planning policies and decisions should plan positively for the provision of open space, and that a network of high-quality open spaces and opportunities for sport and physical activity is important for the health and well-being of communities. In addition, through local or neighbourhood plans, communities can identify for protection Local Green Spaces of particular local importance. The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has consulted on how a system of biodiversity net gain might be introduced through the planning system, which could also contribute to green space in cities. The responses to that consultation are being considered at present.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that access to a network of open and green spaces is important for the health and well-being of communities, and the planning system highlights this in a number of ways. Our revised National Planning Policy Framework sets out that sufficient provision for the conservation and enhancement of green infrastructure should be included in strategic planning policies, the importance of green infrastructure in encouraging healthy lifestyles, and makes provision for communities to identify and protect green areas of particular importance to them through the designation of land as Local Green Space through local and neighbourhood plans.</p><p>The planning system acts as a control on an individual’s use of land and therefore it is right that they should have an impartial appeal against the refusal of planning permission. An independent Planning Inspector will give careful consideration to the planning merits of the case and take into account the views of the local planning authority and local residents before reaching a decision to allow or dismiss an appeal. Therefore any submissions made by community groups at the planning application stage will also be a matter for consideration at appeal.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Where residual open space is delivered as part of a new development, local planning authorities can consider imposing conditions that prevent the use of the land for other purposes.<br><br>If residual open space comes forward for further development, this is likely to require an application for planning permission which must be considered in line with the local plan and national planning policy for open space. The National Planning Policy Framework provides strong protection in relation to building on open space. The Framework makes clear that existing open space, sports and recreational land should not be built on unless an assessment has been undertaken which has clearly shown it to be surplus to requirements, or the loss resulting from the proposed development would be replaced by equivalent or better provision in terms of quantity and quality in a suitable location. The Framework also enables local communities to identify green areas of particular importance to them for special protection by designating them as Local Green Space, through the preparation of local and neighbourhood plans.<br><br>The regulatory regime for environmental permitting is a matter for the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The regulatory regime for health and safety is a matter for the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.</p>
