Environmental Impact and Appropriate Assessment

The Draft Open Space Strategy is not a class of development listed in Annex I or II of the EIA Directive and therefore no Environmental Impact Statement is required.

The Draft Strategy has been screened for Appropriate Assessment and has been deemed as not requiring an Appropriate Assessment. Prior to the advancement/implementation of any subsequent project directly or indirectly relating to development or expanded activity which may potentially impact on a Natura 2000 site, such development will require at a minimum a Habitat Directive Assessment Screening. Development which adversely impacts on any protected habitats or species will not be advanced

Byelaws as they are applied to residential open space
Under the current bye-laws it is forbidden to either cycle, skateboard, roller skate, roller blades on open space.  The application of the bye-laws to residential open space in the same manner as they are applied in regional parks is in our view, inappropriate.
