Time to build on the green belt?

An expert panel debate whether it's time to unbuckle the green belt and let developers build.

From ‘eco-towns’ to redeveloped brownfield sites, are the UK government's plans really able to address the chronic shortage of housing? Or are the environmental concerns influencing housing policy actually inhibiting development and construction? Do we need to rethink our priorities? If so, should we unbuckle the green belt and let the developers build? Or is ‘concreting over the countryside’ too high a price to pay?
