Important Open Space, Frontages and Green Corridors
This study has now been superseded by the Important Open Spaces and Frontages Review 2012
The study reviewed all existing Important Open Spaces and Frontages as designated in the Rutland Local Plan 2001 via a desktop based assessment and consultation with all town councils, parish councils and parish meetings in December 2009- February 2010.
The study aimed to determine whether:
• Existing sites can still be deemed as Important
• To identify new potential sites both via desktop assessment and through the feedback received from town councils, parish councils and parish meeting.
• To critique whether existing sites can still be deemed as important.
For continuity all sites were assessed against the same 6 tests of compliance as originally outlined in the Rutland Local Plan.
Taking this into account the study has:
• Identified 248 existing Important Open Spaces/Frontages
• Through assessment 55 current sites have been removed
• Proposed that 46 sites be added
• Determined that 239 sites will be taken forward as part of the Local Development Framework.
