This section deals with sports and recreation proposals which primarily rely on use of open land, as distinct from activities requiring extensive buildings (see 18.1). Large scale covered accommodation relating to existing open recreational uses is considered at (18.133). Watersports are discussed in the ensuing section (18.3), equestrian activities at (23.2) and adventure/activity centres at (18.5). Sports uses which fall within the curtilage of private houses are considered at (12.8). Otherwise, in line with the judgment in Houghton v SOS & Another 12/1/1995 the scope of the term "outdoor sports" embraces both private and public facilities.
