Guides to saving England’s open spaces

The Open Spaces Society has launched a campaign “to save England’s much-loved open spaces”, publishing a tool-kit for communities to protect their green spaces as well as calling on planning authorities to respond positively to requests to save local spaces.

The tool-kit consists of three handbooks:

  • How to win local green space through neighbourhood plans,
  • Community assets and protecting open space,
  • and Local green space designation.
