Community Facilities

Objective 1: Community Facilities

We will protect our most highly valued community facilities and encourage the provision of new community facilities to increase the sustainability of Lowick

 

 

To do this we propose the following planning policies:

Policy L1: Community Facilities

  • To protect local community facilities and registered Assets of Community Value from loss to other uses, and to support the further provision of new community and recreational facilities

What do you think are the most important community facilities in Lowick that we should retain? 

Please add any to the list, by taking the survey

 

What type of new facilities (including recreational facilities) do we need?

Please add any to the list, by taking the survey


Policy L2: Local Green Spaces

  • We will designate land as ‘Local Green Space’ which will be given the highest level of protection. Development on these sites will not allowed except in very special circumstances unless it is related to the enhancement or enjoyment of that Local Green Space.

Community Actions

For this objective, community actions to be taken forward by the Parish Council will be:

CA1:  We will identify and register Assets of Community Value with Northumberland County Council.

CA2:  Provide and encourage better public information about community facilities, local needs and local services and support initiatives such as Lowick in Bloom

CA3:  We will identify sites for new green space in partnership with owners, and work to promote groups who might use them

CA4:  We will work closely with the school, the village hall, and the church to improve facilities and links with the local community.


Please comment on these, by taking the survey
