Village Greens

July 27, 2011

 This arrived today from the Open Spaces Society. Please do let them know your thoughts.

This is to tell you that the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has published (25 July) a consultation paper on the registration of new towns and village greens, http://www.defra.gov.uk/consult/files/110725-village-green-letter1.pdf.

This is published on the same day as the draft National Planning Policy Framework (Department for Communities and Local Government)http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/planningandbuilding/pdf/1951811.pdf which makes proposals for the new Local Green Space designation.

We are considering both documents and will submit responses on behalf of the society.  The responses will be posted on our website in due course. The deadline for responses is 17th October 2011.  In the meantime, you may wish to consider the document and send us your comments and please do also submit your own responses.
