RIBA backs building on greenbelt


Building on Green Belt is the last resort of the desperate or the unimaginative. We should be doing more within existing city boundaries, where there is rarely a shortage of sites, just a shortage of political will-power to transform them into homes. There is no such thing as a Green Belt site that has outlived its usefulness; where it is scrappy land, the answer is not to build on it but to green it with woods and gardens. Paul Finch
