Allotments or urban spaces that provide a tranquil oasis could be designated. Land which is partly developed with structures such as sports pavillions, boating lakes or war memorials could also be appropriate. They key characteristic for the designation should be the particular importance to the local community. More information, including the criteria which the site must meet, can be seen on the Local Green Space Designation page.
