Definition

A topological space is termed locally metrizable if it satisfies the following equivalent conditions:

  • Every point has an open neighbourhood which is a metrizable space
  • Given a point, and any open neighbourhood of the point, there is a smaller open neighbourhood of the point which is metrizable
