POLICY CN13 - Protection of Open Space, Sport and Recreational Facilities

Areas identified as open space on the Proposals Map will be safeguarded. Proposals which would result in the loss of open space with sport, recreation or amenity value, or facilities which meet the recreational needs of the community will only be permitted where:

  1. an assessment of community need has been undertaken which clearly demonstrates that the open space, building or land is surplus to requirements; or
  2. alternative provision of an equivalent community benefit can be provided in a convenient and accessible location in addition to any further requirements for open space arising from the proposal; or
  3. the existing open space, sports or recreational facility can be enhanced through thedevelopment of a small part of the site; and
  4. the development is for recreational and/or community purposes related to the use of the space, building or land; and
  5. the proposal is sited so as not to compromise the essential character of the space, building or land.
