Conservative Policy on the Green Belt

This was a very welcome statement from Eric Pickles, Shadow Communities Secretary:
"The Green Belt has served England well for the last half century – protecting against urban sprawl and unsustainable development.

“Yet I fear the Green Belt now faces a sustained assault from Labour's army of bulldozers and concrete mixers – with local communities powerless to resist Whitehall’s Soviet-style targets."

We need to build more homes and regenerate rundown communities – yet Green Belt protection must remain. The Green Belt defines and protects urban communities from sprawl.”
