A framework for green space

21 April 2011

In autumn 2010, the Department for Communities and Local Goverment (DCLG) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) agreed to ‘create a new designation to protect green areas of particular importance to local communities’.  However, by April 2011, the government has made no progress whatever in developing its ideas.

The Open Spaces Society asked its members to advise on what they would wish such a designation to achieve.  In our information sheet, A framework for green spaces, we have distilled the responses we received. Read it here.
