  • play areas, picnic sites and outdoor eating places
  • sports playing pitches
  • formal parks and land where the grass is cut
  • land outside schools and hospitals
  • car parks, public transport bays and surrounds
  • cycle ways and surfaced areas near to houses
  • shopping areas, markets and public circulation areas
  • cemeteries and war memorials
  • land surrounding toilets, recycling sites and public buildings
