Open Space Strategies
LUC has considerable experience of preparing Planning Policy Guidance 17 compliant Open Space, Sports and Recreation Strategies.
These studies provide a series of standards (quantitative, qualitative and accessibility) and recommendations for the management and improvement of open space, sport and leisure facilities within a designated Borough or District. The strategies involve site audits, GIS mapping/analysis and consultation to determine existing levels of open space provision. A key driver of these strategies is to inform the development of policy for inclusion in Core Strategies and Supplementary Planning Documents.
