Daventry District Council Settlements and Countryside Local Plan
The National Planning Framework (NPPF), published by the Department for Communities and Local Government in March 2012, sets out the governments planning policies for England. Paragraphs 76 to 78 introduce a new Local Green Space designation (LGS) to protect local green areas of particular importance to local communities. This will enable communities, in certain circumstances, to identify and protect areas that are of value to them through local and neighbourhood plans.
In October 2017 the PC nominated sites within the Parish for designation as Local Green Space.
