Thirteen threats to the West Midlands Green Belt

CPRE West Midlands identifies the 13 threats to Green Belt in the region.   



Building on the foundations of our 2007 report What Price West Midlands Green Belts?, this 2015 report published to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Green Belt assesses the extent to which the West Midlands metropolitan Green Belt remains relevant to achieving sustainability and protecting the countryside from sprawl.  



This charter for the countryside describes the England CPRE wants to see in 2026, our centenary year. The Vision, produced after wide consultation, pictures a countryside in 2026 that is used and valued by all as a national asset, helping create a healthier, less stressed nation where people are in tune with the environment and aware of their impact on it.
