Protect our property values!

Protesters urge Government to stop housing on green belt

A PETITION calling on the Government to protect South Gloucestershire green belt signed by thousands of residents has been presented to Parliament. Labour's housing targets for the area are being scrapped by the coalition but a raft of unpopular planning applications in rural areas have sparked concerns that beauty spots could be threatened before new rules come in. "Petitioners are concerned by attempts to build inappropriate development on the green belt and note that green belt sites have faced applications to build housing which have consistently been opposed by local residents, locally elected councillors and the Member of Parliament."

    We really need to develop new satalite towns with rail links etc. on former militiart bases or something of the like. Does anybody on this site really want every green patch of land in the cities built upon?

  • As you can see, there’s not a square inch of spare land round that way, none at all:

  • I’m more in favour of building up, not out. Modern flats don’t have to be tiny (think Friends or Frasier). As it happens I know the area of South Gloucestershire. A lot of new housing has been built up over the last 20 years there; and traffic levels are horrific at all times of day. If I lived locally I wouldn’t be too keen on seeing more greenbelt development either. If there was some decent public transport then they could string out new developments along a tram or train line, with green spaces in between stations.

  • With modern intensive farming methods we do not need as much green space so we might as well build on it.
