Housing Growth and Green Infrastructure (NE31)

The Government is seeking an additional three million homes by 2020 and has pledged that at least 60% of these will be built on brownfield land, leaving a substantial amount to be provided elsewhere.
We have not endorsed the proposed housing numbers but accept that a high level of expansion will have significant implications for the natural environment. Housing growth, however, can also deliver substantial benefits for the natural environment and people together.
