East Staffordshire Borough Council – Open Space and Playing Pitch Draft SPD consultation

East Staffordshire Borough Council has prepared a draft Open Space and Playing Pitch Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to provide guidance for the provision, adoption and future maintenance of outdoor open space and playing pitches directly needed as a result of new development within the Borough. It makes clear what is expected when deciding planning applications by setting out both the quantitative and qualitative amounts of recreational open space required by new proposals along with highlighting the playing pitch priorities for the Borough.

The Open Space and Playing Pitch SPD will be published for consultation on Tuesday 13th November until Wednesday 2nd January 2019. Any representations will be considered and reported to Members with any proposed changes to the document and, if accepted, adopted for use in determining planning applications.
