982: Green belts

This paper is taken from ‘Green belts: a greener future’ from Natural England and Campaign to Protect Rural England

Year of Publication2010

Fourteen Green Belts cover nearly 13% of England. Green Belt land could be improved and marketed more effectively, could provide more local produce from community farming, orchards and allotments and by encouraging school farm partnerships. There is also scope for more trees and wetland to improve urban fringe landscapes and provide forest products, renewable energy, new wildlife habitats and recreational space. Better advice on encouraging and supporting wildlife should be provided to the managers of Green Belt land. ,
