Question

Do you agree with the Prime Minister's comments of 18th November, and reported in the Daily Mail on 19th November under the headline " Cameron swore he'd treasure the Green Belt. What a hollow promise" about the Prime Minister's view that there needs to be housing development in the green belt?

Answer for Protecting the Green Belt

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Prime Minister is entitled to his own views on Green Belt development. My view on it is set out in the London Plan - that I strongly support the current extent of London's Green Belt, its extension in appropriate circumstances and its protection from inappropriate development.
