RTPI: Green Belt Should Be Considered For Housing

The green belt should be considered for new housing, the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) has said. In a policy statement, the RTPI said the government’s upcoming Housing White Paper needs a “fresh approach” to direct where new housing should be located. The statement said: “Green belt boundaries may well need to change, but only after a careful review over wider areas than single local authorities, where safeguards are put in place to ensure development is sustainable, affordable and delivered in a timely manner, and without prejudice to the renewal of brownfield land”. Download the policy statement from the RTPI website.
