The Local Green Space designation should only be used: -

  1. where the green space is in reasonably close proximity to the community it serves;
  2. where the green area is demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquillity or richness of its wildlife; and
  3. where the green area concerned is local in character and is not an extensive tract of land.
