The recognition that the loss of open space can result in improved sports and recreation facilities which can be used more intensively is welcomed. Sufficient flexibility must be built in to ensure that the focus is on usability rather than simply the number of hectares provided recognising that smaller open space provision does not mean fewer recreational opportunities. Development can and will continue to deliver open space and recreation opportunities but must not be restricted by excessive standards similar to those proposed. A standard of 1.8 hectares per 1000 population is considered acceptable.
