Open Spaces - Update on planning related matters

Report of the Remembrancer.


Members considered a report of the Remembrancer providing an update in relation to raising awareness of the importance of open spaces, specifically linked to the Government’s planning proposals, following discussions concerning the Planning White Paper.


Members were advised that the City Corporation had been active in more activity on metropolitan land issues relating to Hampstead Heath providing comments to Government consultation. Following this, a question was raised by the City’s MP and Officers continued working with officials on metropolitan open land to be included in and protected by White Paper consultation. Further work will continue with pan London groups on planning on all areas, not just protected areas.


The Chair was pleased the Remembrancer was working on this on this vital open space and hoped the Government would take the City Corporation’s representations seriously.
