First they came for the green field sites, then they came for the green belt, then they came for the national parks … and by renaming AONBS they came for them too ….. The developer lobby has now come for everything.
Sit back and watch those developers get even richer … while those who need affordable (TRULY AFFORDABLE) housing get shafted again.
“People living in the countryside have to accept a “steady supply” of new homes need to be built in National Parks, the Government adviser in charge of a major review has said.
Julian Glover, who is running a review of whether to add to England’s 10 National Parks, said more homes had to be built in these protected areas.
Mr Glover also raised the prospect that new national parks will be created on the edge of major cities like Birmingham so people who live in urban areas can easily access them.
Another idea is to find new names for England’s 30 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. …”
