Can London afford the Green Belt?


A recent report by Centre for Cities indicates that over the long-term London will need to extend its boundaries into the Green Belt if it is to meet the economic needs of the city’s growing population.


Loosening the Green Belt


London should conduct a review of its Green Belt land to see if it can help to address the city’s housing need, perhaps within a wider regional plan. But it must be careful to avoid being railroaded into simply enriching landowners and should conduct an intelligent appraisal of its brownfield capacity first.
