But does that not create the economic problem that we are now experiencing? We have had a push for town centre development and look where that has got us!

So are you proposing we “save” the greenbelt at all costs - even if the market dictates that this is where the development needs to happen?

It is clearly important that planning decisions are sensitive to the market while also recognising the importance of achieveing other goals at the same time.  The root cause of our economic problems isn’t a result of town centre over out of town development (even if that had been occuring and much out of town and edge of town development has continued).  We also have large amounts of land already with planning consent and the vast majority of planning applications - 90% for the larger commercial developments - gettin gpermission.  Which brings us back to planning not being the cause of economic problems but good planning being part of the solution.
