Javid Does Not Mention Green Belt but ‘Further Significant measures’in White Paper

CCO full speech

We want to radically increase brownfield development and bring life back to abandoned sites.

That means delivering high quality housing for families, bringing new energy to our high streets and town centres …

… abandoned shopping centres being transformed into new communities …

… and increasing density of housing around stations to build homes that people want to live in.

These three initiatives are just the beginning.

We will publish a Housing White Paper later this year, with further significant measures …

… all helping us towards our ambition for a million new homes by 2020.

The leak to the Daily Mail today was probably after a section was excised to avoid negative headlines on the day of Hammonds speech. Watch for the White Paper

One thought on “Javid Does Not Mention Green Belt but ‘Further Significant measures’in White Paper

  1. Housing should be developed alongside transport infrastructure for economic, social and environmental benefits, say countryside campaigners

    A new paper released by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) argues that high-density development near to high-quality public transport services could boost businesses and jobs, create more well-designed homes and build more diverse, exciting communities – all while reducing pressure on the Green Belt and the wider countryside.
