Green belt farming in London

Nearly a quarter of London’s area is Green Belt. Depending on how it is used, this land can help to cool the city, absorb air pollution, soak up flood water and provide habitat for wildlife and access to the countryside for urban people. The Environment Committee is investigating how sustainable food growing in the Green Belt can be promoted and supported. Find out more.
