We updated the National Planning Policy Framework in July 2018. This includes a policy on the designation of Local Green Space, under which communities can identify and protect local green spaces of particular importance to them. The Framework also sets out that existing open space should not be built on unless it is shown to be surplus to requirements, or the loss would be replaced by alternative provision.
