Green space audit

The purpose of the green space audit is to set out a comprehensive record of all existing green space in Selby district.

Whilst a predominantly rural district, not everyone has access to the countryside, and it is important that the district’s residents are able to access local parks and areas of recreational and amenity green space within their local communities.

The green space audit maps the location of green space throughout the district undertakes a quantitative and qualitative assessment of this provision and has established local standards for the provision of green space to identify those areas which have a surplus or deficiency of such space. The audit has informed the development of policy in the emerging local plan.
