Long title

A Bill make provision for the protection of gardens and urbans green spaces; and for connected purposes


The Bill would require planning authorities to have special regard to the desirability of preserving gardens and urban green spaces. Current planning guidance provides some protection for public open space but not for private gardens. The Bill has been drafted in response to concerns that too many private gardens are used to provide for house building.
