Policy 19 - Open Space Sport and Leisure

The Council is lead partner in the ‘Sevenoaks Commons Project’ which will provide improved access to a unique series of habitats and heritage assets which are linked by public rights of way. The 3rd paragraph of the second section of Policy 19 should be amplified as follows:

"Proposals to improve the quality of and/or access to the District's open spaces, the Public

Right of Way (PROW) network and cycling routes will be supported. In particular the Council as lead partner, will support the ‘Sevenoaks Commons Project’ which includes improvement of the public rights of way linking the Commons and other important open spaces to which the public has access, and management of traffic in the interest of safety. Connections to the existing PROW network must be incorporated in all new developments along with other active travel opportunities."
