Regional Spatial Strategies: Greenbelt

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether any core strategies have been rejected or found unsound by planning inspectors due to insufficient consideration given to planning for (a) green field and (b) green belt development; and if she will make a statement. (211382)

No core strategy development plan document will have been found unsound purely on the basis of the consideration of green field or green belt land for housing because the issue of housing land will have been looked at on a comprehensive basis, taking into account all sources of potential supply.
