Adopted in May 2008, this SPD provides guidance on the provision of open space in association with developments. This is supported by the Open Space and Play Area Strategy 2007 and the Play Strategy for Mid Devon 2007 - 2010.
The Council has prepared a draft Green Infrastructure Plan (GIP) which includes a Strategy to 2026 and Delivery Plan. This is intended to replace the current open space Supplementary Planning Document, which is more limited in its scope and will become redundant once the Community Infrastructure Levy is introduced.
