What is a Green Space?
It is a green area that is important to village life. For instance, because of its recreational value, or perhaps it is significant for wildlife, or its beauty or the tranquillity it offers.
For example, a village green, allotments, the Sutton Benger Rec, footpaths, bridleways, riverbanks, highway verges.
To meet planning criteria, a green space must be i.) close to the community ii.) of local importance, iii.) local in character and NOT an extensive tract of land.
How can you help?
