Greenbelt in the headlines

Whilst we support new home building – people have to live somewhere – we also think that a new holistic vision for England’s greenbelt is needed. Otherwise the greenbelt will be eroded away with unsustainable car-dependent housing developments. We want to see sustainable food growing, homes for land workers, and nature restoration – as well as efforts to create urban-rural synergy. Greenbelts were set up to provide space and recreation for urban dwellers. With 13% of England subject to greenbelt this is a huge topic. Any taskforce of experts should include voices from communites and not for profit groups like the Urban Agriculture Consortium, CPRE, the Landworkers Alliance Sustain and others. See our greenbelt video – even more pertinent now.
