In British town planning, the green belt is a policy for controlling urban idea is for a ring of countryside where urbanisation will be resisted for the foreseeable future, maintaining an area where agriculture, forestry and outdoor leisure can be expected to prevail.

The fundamental aim of green belt policy is to prevent urban sprawl by keeping land permanently open, and. the provision of appropriate facilities (in connection with the existing use of land or a change of use) for outdoor sport, outdoor recreation, cemeteries and burial grounds and allotments; as long as the facilities preserve the openness of the Green Belt and do not conflict with the purposes of.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) was first published on 27 March and updated on 24 July and 19 February This sets out the government’s planning policies for England.

One of those, bullet point 2 exc, epts the “provision of appropriate facilities. impact of Green Belt policies on sport was briefly considered.

This found an apparent tension between promoting sport and recreation in the Green Belts near to major towns and cities in the interests of sustainable development, and the aim of Green Belt policy to keep land open.

If sports facilities cannot compete with other. The NPPF states that local planning authorities should “plan positively to enhance the beneficial use of the Green Belt, such as looking for opportunities to provide opportunities for outdoor sport and recreation”. However it does not list sport and recreation (e.g.

playing pitches) as “appropriate” development within the Green Belt. increasing provision of places in areas where there is unmet demand but also in driving up the quality of provision. 21 The application site is part of a larger area identified as MOL.

The London Plan (policy ) gives the MOL the same level of protection as in the Green Belt, and the National Planning Policy. The green belt concept was first introduced for London in before the Town and Country Planning Act enabled local authorities to designate the status themselves.

Indeed, not only would this reduce emissions by sourcing produce locally but with the use of agroecology, it is also an opportunity to provide nutritious organic produce, improve soil health, increase biodiversity, and create jobs.

The Green Belt is a significant area of land around London but there are other constraints on development too. In outer London boroughs, 28% of land is Green Belt (which is a planning designation designed to prevent towns from expanding, not a landscape or ecological one), reaching as.

Despite the green belt's success at conserving open space it has been criticised in recent years. Firstly, the London green belt's proscription on development is linked to a chronic shortage of housing in the South–East, one of Europe's most economically buoyant areas (Barker, ).This is understandable when the size of London's green belt is considered.

The development of local plans can include a review of the Green Belt but this does not take place in a strategic context. In particular cross boundary considerations between London and its neighbouring authorities are limited, yet the Metropolitan Green Belt clearly requires a coordinated approach.
