Local Green Space Designation and Protection- Have Your Say.

As you may be aware, BSTC are working on an update to the current Neighbourhood Development Plan. As part of our work, we are looking to protect a number of green spaces within the town by designating them as Local Green Spaces (LGS) in the plan. LGS designation is a way to provide special protection against development for green areas of particular importance to local communities. Reasons for designation can include, setting, nature, conservation or historical importance.

We have identified the following green spaces for possible LGS designation: Summerleaze Down, Efford Down, Maer Down, Bude Golf Club, Bude Rugby Club, Bude Football Club, Bude Canal, Morwenna Triangle, Berries Avenue, Goldsworthy Drive, Kingshill Woods and the Bude Community Orchard.

An important part of the designation process is gathering evidence of support from the local community to help us demonstrate why these spaces are of value to the community. Perhaps you have become involved with the Bude Community Orchard recently or are involved in a community group that benefits from the use of any of the above spaces. Maybe you have lived in Berries Avenue for many years and are aware of the importance of the space for local residents. BSTC would be grateful to receive any support to the designations, either by commenting here or emailing the office at office@bude-stratton.gov.uk with a few words, so that we can work together to protect our much loved green spaces in the town.

Local green space designation allows local communities to protect green spaces of local importance for reasons including setting and nature conservation. Local communities can identify green spaces through their local and neighbourhood plans, which will then receive protection equivalent to green belt land.
