This document sets out the evidence which underpinned the Urban Open Land (UOL) designations in the Welwyn Hatfield District Plan 2005. It maps each of the UOLs designated in the District Plan 2005 and sets out the description relating to them as assessed by the Council. The majority of UOLs were assessed through the Council's Open Space Survey January 2001. This survey was subject to revisions in November 2001 and December 2002. The document identifies where a UOL was added following production of the initial survey in January 2001 or was amended through the subsequent revisions to that survey.
The Urban Open Land (UOL) master sheet provides a chronological record for each individual UOL that the Council has surveyed, designated or proposed for designation.
The Urban Open Land New and Amended Sites document forms part of the evidence base for the Local Plan. It sets out new open spaces proposed to be designated in the Local Plan as well as a range of proposed amendments to existing designated open spaces.
