CONCLUSIONS

48. This Planning Advice Note recognises the importance of creating successful places and promotes effective links between the planning, design and management of open space. The planning system plays an important role in protecting valuable and valued open space and ensuring provision of appropriate quality in or within easy reach of new development. The PAN encourages partnership between local authority departments with responsibility for open space, with active participation from local communities, open space users, amenity bodies, and the development industry in the achievement of quality open space. It emphasises that open space strategies are an effective way of co-ordinating policy and assessing provision and need. They should feed into the development plan process, providing the basis for informed policy and investment decisions.
