South Norfolk Council (SNC) is re-consulting on a draft Guidelines for Recreation Provision in New Residential Developments Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).
The draft SPD outlines the Council’s agreed policy on the adoption and maintenance of open spaces and play areas in new developments. From the date of adoption of the SPD the Council will not take on responsibility for such areas. This will fall to either Parish/Town Councils or to a designated Management Company. The draft SPD contains guidelines for Parish and Town Councils thinking of taking on this responsibility. We would appreciate your views.
The draft SPD will be subject to public consultation for a four-week period from Friday 4th May to 5pm on Tuesday 5th June. Comments are invited on any aspect of the SPD but please make it clear as to which section/paragraph number(s) the comments relate. The Council’s preferred method for receiving comments is via email to LP@s-norfolk.gov.uk. Comments can also be sent by post to: Interim Joint Spatial Planning Manager, South Norfolk Council, South Norfolk House, Cygnet Court, Long Stratton, Norfolk, NR15 2XE.
