Green Belt: Property Development

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 23 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what approvals Natural England has given for development on green belt land in the last 12 months. (269978)

Natural England has no executive powers in the planning process so it is not in a position to grant approvals (or otherwise) for development on green belt land. Such decisions are the responsibility of the local authority of the area in which the green belt lies.
