1939 (Elizabeth Ann) Unmet housing need is not a justification for downgrading Green Belt land, and certainly not without the support of the local people who look after it, and treasure it. Green Belt is a policy for controlling urban growth and preserving the openness between settlements all around the country.
There needs to be more co-operation with other councils to find solutions, for example, with considerate and careful planning, brownfield sites could be well designed and attractive areas for development in the future.

1963 (Will Durston) In order to adjust the Green Belt boundaries, EBC will need the support of the local residents. I do not support this because housing development is not a justification to remove land from the Green Belt. Therefore this is not an exceptional circumstance that justifies the destruction of the local Green Belt. 21 Feb 2017 19:45

1981 (Oliver Bath) As per the National Guidelines state that “unmet housing need is NOT a justification” to remove land from the Green Belt. Therefore, the provision of housing is NOT an exceptional circumstance that will
allow the destruction of Green Belt and heritage. Surely this is sufficient??? Also, there is clearly not enough evidence to suggest that the Council has given due consideration to other options

A Emery The Consultation Documents state that Green Belt boundaries should only be adjusted "with the support of local people". Local people do not support this. This is not beneficial to local people, the existing residents.

National Guidelines state that "unmet housing need is NOT a justification" to remove land from the Green Belt. Therefore, the provision of housing is NOT an exceptional circumstance that will allow the destruction of Green Belt and heritage.

Has the Council proven that it has worked with other councils to achieve this rather than destroying Green Belt?
This seems to be an easy way out rather than considering other options.

Hinchley Wood has already had developments in recent years with Hinchley Park and the retirement homes. The area cannot cope with any more development. The exceptional circumstances do not warrant destroying the Green Belt.
