Save Brockhill Greenbelt
The idea of a green belt was first set out in the 1930ís for a ring of countryside where urbanisation would be resisted for the foreseeable future, maintaining an area where agriculture, forestry and outdoor leisure could prevail. The fundamental aim of green belt policy is to prevent urban sprawl by keeping land permanently open, and consequently the most important attribute of green belts is their openness. Local authorities have always been encouraged to protect lands around their towns by these means.
However, Redditch Borough Council now want abolish the green belt to the north of the town in order to meet housing targets set by the previous government but now abandoned by the present government.
Correct! That doesn't make sense!
