Richmondshire District Council

Open spaces

The Open Spaces Society have published their Charter for Open Spaces (England)(August 2020).    

The council has robust policies in place for the protection of Green Space (see Policy CP12(d) of the current Local Plan: Core Strategy.

The Local Plan is currently under review. As part of this, a consultation ran for the designation of Local Green Spaces between 30 May and 9 August 2019.   

121 areas of land were submitted as part of the process and 77 met the criteria to be designated as a Local Green Space.

These will be presented along with proposed new policies during the Preferred Options consultation (planned for quarter one in 2021), which we encourage the community to engage with.
