Dear Neighbour

A report – Safe Under Us? – released today by the London Green Belt Council and the Council for the Protection of Rural England, shows just how threatened the London Green Belt is.

The report lists a number of reasons why this is so, including the following:

Guidance on the government’s NPPF is causing Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) to inflate housing targets to questionably high levels, basing them upon speculative and in many cases invalid assumptions. It is these targets which underpin the Green Belt threats.

The report can be read by clicking here.

Also, have a look at the interactive map on the London Green Belt Council website, which shows the threatened sites around London:

Kempton Park is there.

Kind regards

Keep Kempton Green
