Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Someone request usage of the area to chang from housing to meadow etc.... Do I have to delete the grey housing area somehow, or is it sufficient to create a new green shape (which then will overlay the housing area)?

You can just draw a new meadow, like this one in the adjacent area. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/832323318

Oh. That was you.

I personally wouldn't join landuse areas to ways which represent the centre lines of footpaths, cycleways and roads, but up to where the limits actually are as shown on aerial imagery (so usually half a road plus pavement/sidewalk away).
