No Comments Chapter 33 APPENDIX S: DEVELOPER CONTRIBUTIONS FOR NEW PROVISION / ENHANCEMENT OF OPEN SPACE

The following figures give the commuted sum rates for enhancement of existing open spaces and provision of new open spaces. They are based on the 2015 Integrated Contract rate for HDC and will be updated annually. The cost for laying out a new open space, as appropriate by category and are calculated by multiplying the 'provision rate per 1000 persons' (rates based on Appendix 1, Column 3) by the 'cost of laying out per Ha'. The new provision rate includes a land value of £30,000.00 per hectare as an additional cost for laying out the facility, but is otherwise identical to the enhancement calculation.

The LEAP standard has an activity zone that is a minimum of 400m2 (0.04 Ha) contains at least 5 pieces of equipment that encourage particular types of play. We define the appropriate types as Rotary Play, Swinging, Sliding, Climbing and Rocking/See Saw Motions.

All play equipment must conform to EN1176 and En1177. A buffer zone not less than 20m in depth should be present between the LEAP and the nearest dwelling's habitable rooms, with a minimum of 10m to the nearest residential boundary. This zone should ideally include some planting to allow children to experience natural scents, colours and textures. Please note that the buffer zone can be dual-use, eg provision of Amenity Greenspace as part of this buffer zone. Play areas and their buffer zones should be located in residential areas or else close to well-used footpaths, so that child safety is increased through passive observation. The activity zone should be enclosed by a fence of at least 1m in height, with two outward-opening, self-closing pedestrian gates on opposite sides of the site (to deter bullying and entry by dogs), with barriers to limit the speed of children leaving the activity zone. It should also include a double vehicle access gate for maintenance purposes. Seating should be provided in appropriate locations and quantities for accompanying adults to sit. This presence increases the safety of the children that use the site. Several bins should also be provided to collect any litter that may arise. A notice, indicating the name of the site, usage age of the facility, that dogs are excluded from the site and provide the contact details of the site operator to report any incidents/damage to the site.
