I have very mixed feelings about this. On the one hand we need more runway space but using green belt for Towns is more than I can stand. I would rather high rise on brownfield.

It wouldn't be so critical had a previous govt not let so many in whilst pretendung to dobthe opposite. I am none too pleasedbwith this one as,well were immigration is concerned.

Green open spaces are important to everyone. They should be preserved. The green belt should only be built on if there are no brownfield sites available to build high rise appartments. Town centres are for people to live and work and any free space should be used for homes. Drinky mentioned Runway space. Those can be easily built on coastal fringes close to industrial estates, on land which has been cleared for redevelopment.
