'Green' / Recreation / Conservation (G)
In essence this broad GZT category is intended for zones which cater for 'green', recreation and conservation related issues.
Active open space (G4) is a sub-category into which zones which provide for stadia, GAA pitches, golf courses, rugby or soccer fields etc should be placed. If these facilities are part of a much larger open area zone then a judgement call is required to determine if the zone falls within this sub-category or the Open space, park sub-category (G1). As a general guide, if more than 30% but less than 50% of the area would be take up with the facilities mentioned above then it is probably the case that the zone should be classified into this sub-category, with a judgement call being required to make the final determination. However if more than 50% of the land area would be so taken up then the zone would definitely need to be classified into this sub-category.
