Important Undeveloped and Community Spaces (October 2017)

Links to maps showing proposed Important Undeveloped and Community Spaces are available below.

Community spaces have been identified where  provide a recreational benefit and are open to the public to use. Examples include play areas, church yards, non-registered village greens and sports pitches.

Important Undeveloped Spaces have been identified where they are important in providing the form and character of villages. The criteria we used for designation are:

  1. The space makes a positive contribution to the overall form, character and appearance of the settlement;
  2. The space makes a positive contribution to the setting of a building or groups of buildings either listed or of historical or architectural interest;
  3. The space provides a vista/viewpoint into the surrounding countryside;
  4. The space provides a visual relief in a settlement where there is a change in the pattern or character of development    
  5. The site has archaeological or historic interest;  
  6. The space provides an open setting for a visually important tree(s) or is important for biodiversity.

More information can be found in the accompanying topic paper.

(Please note that some community spaces are proposed to be included in further drafts of the plan but fall outside the settlements listed below, or outide the National Park boundary. They are listed here.)
