Green Belt for South Hampshire

Green Belt for South Hampshire

There is almost no Green Belt in Hampshire, apart from around the Avon Valley and New Milton. This is well-known. What is less well-known is that it ‘nearly’ had a substantial Green Belt around the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton on a number of occasions.

Latterly it had Strategic Gaps which were the alternatives offered by government, but they lost their policy status with the demise of the South East Plan. Now, there is renewed interest in a Green Belt designated around the cities and protecting the rural hinterland of South Hampshire.

In our latest campaign (see Briefing Paper below and News Release), we are calling on the county's Leaders to forge ahead with a Green Belt for South Hampshire.
