Epping Council debate green belt issues on edge of Harlow

Politics / Thu 10th Sep 2015 at 07:59am

THE first stage of the green belt review for the Epping Forest district has been completed. Councillors received a report on the strategic level review which identifies broad areas. Completion of the review and any proposals to alter existing boundaries will become a significant part of the supporting documentation in the new Local Plan.

Councillor Chris Whitbread, Leader of Council reported that from the analysis of the first stage, the second stage of the green belt review will identify

Areas where the green belt policy designation should remain
Any historic anomalies in the existing boundaries or locations where development has taken place, which may therefore suggest minor amendments to green belt boundaries are required
Areas that would be less harmful in green belt terms for potential development purposes
Identification of any parcel of land as a potential area of development does not mean that the council agrees or approves of it. Planning Portfolio Holder Richard Bassett strongly emphasised that the review does not constitute any decisions by the council.
