At the start of the second para, we suggest omitting the words “We will support” and adding “will be encouraged” at the end of the first sentence.

In the section headed “Open space and recreation” amend the opening sentence of the third paragraph to read “Proposals to increase the number of, and/or improve the quality of”

In the section headed “Children and Young People Play Space” amend the first sentence to read: “Development will be expected to provide proposals for new play areas which will be supported subject to design and location”.

In the section headed “Children and Young People Play Space” remove “or viable” from the second sentence

In the final para, we suggest that use of “may” and the reference to the Council’s discretion” should be omitted, and the policy strengthened to read: “Where development is proposed on a site which is adjacent or very close to existing play facilities, the developer will be required to demonstrate that a requirement to   improve and/or expand such facilities as part of its proposal is inappropriate”.
