New 50 Shades of Planning Podcast – Episode 16: Green Belt. Sacred Cow.


‘I began to see what a sacred cow the Green Belt has become’ said Minister for Housing & Local Government Richard Crossman in 1964. The Green Belt is a political behemoth that has long loomed over the planning system.

In this episode Sam Stafford asks Paul Miner and Kathryn Ventham whether housing need is becoming a sufficiently irresistible force to shift hitherto immovable Green Belt boundaries?
