Do Not Destroy Black Country Green Belt

Friday, 26 June 2020 16:08

West Midlands Regional Group of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) is calling on Councillors to build new houses and offices in the city and not in the Green Belt.

The Association of Black Country Authorities (ABCA) is proposing to release land for nearly 27,000 homes in the Green Belt (in its own and other districts) as part of its Joint Plan which it may publish in the Autumn along with 560 hectares of industrial land although a delay to the Plan has been muted.

CPRE commissioned an assessment of updated evidence produced by the Councils in February and say that level of development in the countryside is not genuinely needed and suggest the actions to mitigate the loss of countryside.
