Greenspaces are essential to healthy and vibrant local communities. This audit provides a catalogue of greenspaces in the towns, villages and hamlets of the District.



The audit updates previous open space studies undertaken in 2008 and 2012 and consolidates and aligns with the assessment work carried out whilst preparing the Local Plan Part 1 and Local Plan Part 2.

The Open Space Audit (2021) represents a new baseline to inform policy making.

The audit uses a new typology for open spaces set out in Table 1.

The Audit also catalogues open spaces which have been identified by Local Plan policies DP2 or DP16.

The Audit does not designate new areas to be covered by Local Plan policies as this can only take place as part of the preparation of a Local Plan.

The Audit provides maps and a schedule for each category of open space.

The maps and Schedules are being updated to reflect changes agreed at Cabinet, prior to adoption of the SPD. Sites added at Cabinet but not yet shown on the settlement maps, are shown in the column titled “Cabinet Maps”.

Please see the Cabinet Report in the Downloads section for additional details.
