Wokingham Borough Council has invited Woodley Town Council to suggest areas to be considered for designation as a Local Green Space in the Local Plan Update. Local Green Space designation is a way to provide special protection against development for green areas of particular importance to local communities.
The Local Green Space designation can only be used where the green space is:
In reasonably close proximity to the community it serves;
Demonstrably special to a local community and holds a particular local significance, for example because of its beauty, historic significance, recreational value (including as a playing field), tranquillity or richness of its wildlife; and
Local in character and is not an extensive tract of land.
Information on the Local Plan Update and Local Green Space designation can be found HERE.
The Town Council has made the following suggestions:
Aldermoors Nature Reserve
South Lake – including the lily pond and play area
Woodford Park and the Memorial Recreation Ground (also known as Coronation Fields)
Sandford Park, between Hurricane Way and Mohawk
Hearn Road play area
Crescent Park in Southlake Crescent
Redwood play area
The park between Masters Close and Marathon Close
The area between Mohawk Way and the old (closed off) Colemans Moor Road
Land over the river from the Loddon Park estate.
In addition, it should be noted that Bulmershe Site of Urban Landscape Value has already been submitted for designation as a Local Green Space.
If any member of the public has further suggestions to put forward for consideration, please send them to: email@example.com saying why you think the area should be considered for designation as a Local Green Space.
Suggestions must be received by Sunday 12 July 2020.
