Beyond the Green Belt  


Few subjects divide opinion as sharply as the Green Belt.

  • Is it a girdle or is it a noose?
  • Does it preserve or does it stifle?
  • Is it the best thing we have ever done in planning or is it outdated?

As the Government considers changes that could open up development in and around the Green Belt, we review the history, the issues and the potential for the future in this collection of online content and accompanying exhibition and event programme.

Read about the Past, Present and Future of the Green Belt.

An exhibition curated by The Built Environment Trust and the Landscape Institute.
