Planning campaign briefing 2 - Green Belts

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) leaves established policy for Green Belts largely unchanged.  However, Green Belt land is likely to be under greater threat than before as a result of the development and growth policies in the NPPF. Strong local campaigning to influence planning policies, reviews, and applications can help protect the Green Belt. It is also possible to create new Green Belt if the relevant policy tests can be met.
