FORTHCOMING EVENT: Strategic Planning and the Green Belt – Thurs 4 Feb 2016

For nearly five decades, the Green Belt has prevented SPGBthe outward sprawl of London. It continues to maintain the permanence and openness of the countryside at its fringes. Local authorities in London and beyond are facing pressure to revisit the Green Belt to meet their housing and employment needs.

Should the permanence of the Green Belt be respected and maintained? Might we consider a different approach in the context of London and South East strategic planning? Or does Green Belt need more wholesale review?
