Green Belt

Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 909534, tabled on 4 March 2019

Answered on

The Government remains committed to protecting the areas that communities value, including the Green Belt. I cannot comment on plans undergoing examination, including Amber Valley, but national policy is clear that Green Belt should only be used for housing as a last resort, and if exceptional circumstances exist.
