There is no mention in the Draft Plan of the designation of Local Green Space as set out in the NPPF para 99.
In terms of green belt enhancements Potential improvements should be seen in the context of the agricultural use of much of the land, and of the prevailing Solihull Rights of Way

Registration of unrecorded access rights should be encouraged and expedited. The Local Plan should also define how funding derived from developers will be applied to the other aspects of enhancements to the Green Belt.

Representation ID: 9441

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Open Spaces Society

Representation Summary:

Public space enhancements in the North of the Borough.
While the availability of space is a major constraint, the high population density should justify a greater emphasis on the provision and maintenance of public space for recreation and amenity. A uniform standard should be applied across the Borough for defining requirements for public access and green space.
