Protecting Green Belt Land - NPPF

The NPPF retains the strength of Green Belt notation as previously set out in PPS2. The construction of new buildings continues to be regarded as inappropriate in Green Belt but there are certain specified exceptions, including:-

“Provision of appropriate facilities for outdoor sport, outdoor recreation and for cemeteries, as long as it preserves the openness of the Green Belt and does not conflict with the purposes of including land within it.”
