Open Spaces Supplementary Planning Document

Chapter 5 Implementation


On site provision

5.1 Full details of the layout, landscaping (including any play equipment etc.) and phasing of all on-site open space provision will be secured by conditions attached to the planning permission.

5.2 If the land is to be offered to the Council this should take place within one year of the open space being laid out, landscaped and equipped. It is preferable for the plots adjoining open space to have been completed by this stage. Any adoption will be subject to a maintenance sum to be determined through negotiation.

5.3 It is important that open space is provided before a significant proportion of the site is completed and occupied. Prior to Occupation of 50% of dwellings provided on site, the Owner shall complete public open spaces to the reasonable satisfaction of the Council.

Off site provision

5.4 Contributions for off site facilities will be dealt with through a Section 106 Legal Agreement (see Appendix 2).
