Open space can include formal sports pitches, open areas within a development and country parks. It provides health and recreation benefits to people living and working nearby or has an ecological value.

Impact on planning decisions

Local planning authorities should assess the need for open space and opportunities for new provision in their areas and this could affect planning decisions.

Responsible organisations and guidance

Authorities and developers may refer to Sport England's guidance on how to assess the need for sports and recreation facilities. There is also guidance on Local Green Space designation, which may form part of the overall open space network within an area.
