Plymouth City Council and South Hams District Council have prepared and are consulting on the Local Green Space Development Plan Document Designation Criteria for the Plymouth Policy Area.

This period of consultation is the first in a series of consultation stages that will be required in the production of the Local Green Space Development Plan Document.

The purpose of this first consultation is to seek views on the proposed methodology and the criteria the Councils will use to assess whether or not green spaces within the Plymouth Policy Area (as defined by the Joint Local Plan) should be formally designated as 'Local Green Spaces'.

The consultation will run from Friday 7 February 2020 until 5pm on Monday 23 March 2020.

Our approach to consultation and engagement at this stage is detailed within the following consultation statement which has been prepared for information only.
