Green space documents

The Green Space documents provide information on the location, coverage and provision of green spaces in Doncaster, they also assess the UDP policies which apply to green spaces.

The following is part of the wider evidence base for the Local Plan.

Local Green Space

Local Green Space is a designation identified in the National Planning Policy Framework which allows for the designation of 'special protection green areas' in a Local Plan or Neighbourhood Plan.

This document sets out the criteria the council has used to assess representations submitted to us for their suitability as a Local Green Space in the Local Plan, and explains which sites are being allocated as Local Green Space in the Local Plan.

Assessment of previous policy areas

Analysis has been carried out on the Green Space policies in the Unitary Development Plan (UDP) in order to identify whether the policies and the sites they designate should be retained as part of emerging planning policies.

Policy RL1 showed open space policy areas.
