Reasoned justification :

8.22Policy GR3 provides for allotments not identified within Proposal GR2 to be protected from development where they can alleviate a local shortfall in accessible public open space or land available as playing fields. This is of most importance where allotments are located within areas where available open land is scarce.

8.23 All the sites listed fall within the urban area and many are known to fall within areas of recreational deficiency. While they do not provide for the recreational needs of the general public in the fullest sense they are an important local resource and often contribute to the greenspace of the urban environment. They are therefore allocated within Proposal GR4 for protection subject to Policy GR3.
