Planning: Green Space Designations

Neighbourhood Plans establishes general planning policies for the development and use of land in a locality. The plans are drawn up by Neighbourhood Planning Groups and are influential. According to the Government, Neighbourhood plans are intended to allow local people to get the right type of development for their community, while still meeting the needs of the wider area. For more information see Neighbourhood Planning on the Government's policy website.

If there is a Neighbourhood Planning group in your area, you can put a Green Space Designation on a green space of community value, including allotments, community gardens and wildlife sites. This will protect the site and prevent it from being developed. For details see the Government's Planning Portal.
