Save our greenbelt

Our Green Belt is a precious resource, improving our local environment, sustaining wildlife and acting as a buffer to stop our villages merging into a single connurbation. It should not be built on when there are better alternatives available.

Incredibly, Labour's leaders are proposing replacing our Green Belt with a "Grey Belt" that will make it easier for developers to concrete over our countryside.

Of course we will need new homes for local people and their families, but it's important that those homes are built in the right place - not just where is easiest and cheapest for developers.

Let me know what you think about our local Green Belt by completing the survey below.
