DEV4 - Playing pitches

The Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan has now been adopted! To find out more please visit the Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan: Adoption page.

The LPAs will ensure that development and growth is matched by an appropriate level of provision for playing pitch facilities. This will be achieved through protecting and improving the stock and capacity of playing pitch facilities, and improving the quality of existing playing pitches and ancillary facilities.

New residential development on larger sites will, where practicable, be expected to deliver new playing pitch facilities on site as part of an integrated scheme. On smaller sites or where this is not practicable, a planning obligation will be sought to mitigate for the impact of new residents through new or improved provision in an appropriate location.
