Leisure, recreation and open spaces

The Leisure, Recreation and Open Space Local Plan (LROS) is one of the documents that forms the Local Development Framework and should be read in conjunction with the other adopted documents. The Plan sets out policies and allocations for the provision, protection and enhancement of leisure, recreation and open space within Wakefield District.

This Plan is accompanied by a Retail and Town Centre / Leisure, Recreation and Open Space Policies Map which should be read in conjunction with the Site Specific Policies Local Plan and Policies Map (2012). Saved policies of the UDP relating to Leisure and Open Space on the Policies Map 2012 are superseded and no longer apply.

The Council adopted the Leisure Recreation and Open Space Local Plan on 18 January 2017.

The final adopted Local Plan, Policies Map and supporting documents can be viewed and downloaded here:
