Coalition Keen To Safeguard the Green Beltphilevers
Following comments made by the National Trust and the Campaign to Protect Rural England that the Coalitions planning reforms will weaken countryside protection, the Government has issued a statement claiming the concerns are unfounded.
The Minister for Decentralisation, confirmed that there is nothing in the Coalitions policy that would lead to a significant loss of Green Belt, and stressed that Green Belt, National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty would remain protected.
