The urban living approach should help to ensure land is used efficiently and reduce the need to travel by private car, it will however result in an increase in the use of, and pressures on, existing parks and green spaces. The importance of providing high quality green space and access opportunities close to where people live is recognised for the wide range of benefits it provides for people and society; it can also help to reduce recreational pressures on sensitive sites. We would expect the enhancement and suitable management of urban parks and green spaces to be a priority for the North Somerset Local Plan and for the WoE GI Plan.
