Local Green Spaces

National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) introduced a new concept of a Local Green Space designation. This is a discretionary designation to be made by inclusion within a local development plan or neighbourhood development plan.

The designation should only be used where the land is not extensive, is local in character and reasonably close to the community; and, where it is demonstrably special, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquility or richness of its wildlife.

The Broadstairs & St. Peter's Neighbourhood Development Plan pre-submission document, proposes to allocate the following sites as Local Green Space under policy BSP5:

Alderney Gardens
Colburn Road Estate
Culmer's Amenity Land
Dumpton Park Drive
Fairfield Road/ Rumfields Road
Fair Street/ Royal Close
Hereson Road
Hornet Close
Kingfisher Walk
Kitty's Green
Ramsgate Road
Reading Street
St. Peter's Village Green
Salts Drive
Selwyn Drive
The Maples
Victoria Parade and Nuckell's Gardens
Vincent Close, also known as Northwood Park
