Zdenek Cerny I am only familiar with Area 58. Since the report gives no guarantees as to limiting the development to only some sections of Area 58, I do not consider this question relevant. If taken out of GB classification, the whole Area 58 would have to be considered as open to eventual full development and a total loss of GB protection against urban sprawl. 20 Feb 2017 17:11

Yomi Akin i simply think not enough is being done the make the most of what is already in place. Any of the earlier arguments are equally valid and could simply repeat as follows.
The document clearly states "The Green Belt is not an environmental or landscape designation but a policy for controlling urban growth. The fundamental aim of Green Belt is to prevent urban sprawl by keeping land permanently open. Therefore the most important attribute of Green Belts is their openness. National policy sets out the purposes of Green Belt as:
• to check the unrestricted sprawl of large built-up areas;
• to prevent neighbouring towns merging into one another;
• to assist in safeguarding the countryside from encroachment;
• to preserve the setting and special character of historic towns;
• to assist in urban regeneration, by encouraging the recycling of derelict and other urban land.
The burden will felt more by the local health services that already struggle to meet the requirements of residents now.
-The challenge here is for a bit of proper, informed, structured thinking with an eye on the future. Maintaining green spaces and making the most of them a very important aspect of a healthy, vibrant and productive community.

Yoko Crow We believe that this is the responsibility of the Counciland would request that details of further options be provided. If the Councilhas not fully evaluated all the other options in these three areas it clearly must do so.

We believe that the Council’s approach to only detail the largest three land masses is simplistic and erroneous. The actual amount of developable land is a more relevant and critical component
