A strip of planned or protected open space, consisting of recreational parks, farmland or uncultivated land used to define and limit the boundaries of a community and prevent urban sprawl.
Areas of open land largely rural In character, and adjacent to urban areas, where strict and permanent planning controls apply in order to; check the unrestricted sprawl of large built -up areas; safeguard the surrounding countryside from further encroachment; prevent neighbouring towns from merging into one and another; preserve the special character of historic towns; and, assist in urban regeneration.
A designation for land around certain cities and large built-up areas, which aims to keep this land permanently open or largely undeveloped. The purpose of the green belt is: â€¢ To check the unrestricted sprawl of built-up areas â€¢ To safeguard the surrounding countryside from further encroachment â€¢ To prevent neighbouring towns from merging into one another â€¢ To preserve the special character of historic towns â€¢ To assist in urban regeneration.
An area around a city, composed mostly of parkland and farmland, in which development is strictly controlled. Its purpose is to prevent the outward growth of the city, preserve countryside for farming, wildlife and recreation, and, often to prevent two or more cities from merging to form one huge urban area.
an area of countryside that has been gives a special status to restrict development
an area of green land around a large city where development is restricted
an area of land, essentially rural, located near an urban center, and protected by strong restrictions against building
a plot of land or a region intended to be maintained in a reasonably natural state, so that commercial or industrial development is severely restricted
These are areas close to settlements which are designed to protect the countryside around towns and villages and prevent settlements from merging. Green belts are also used in this Structure Plan as an area where proactive management is encouraged so as these areas can be enhanced.
A defined area within which those criteria set out in paragraph 1.54 of this Plan apply. The overall aim is to maintain the rural character of these areas and therefore a strong presumption against development applies.
specially designated area of countryside protected from most forms of development in order to stop urban sprawl and the coalescence of settlements, preserve the character of existing settlements and encourage development to locate within existing built-up areas.
An area defined in the Development Plan where there is strict restriction on urban growth, often to prevent the loss of a town's identity, protect the landscape setting or ensure adequate availability of recreational facilities.
An area of open land retained round a city or town over which there are wide-ranging planning restrictions upon development.
Land defined in adopted local plans where planning controls aim to maintain a rural character and therefore where there is a general presumption against development except in very special circumstances.

An area where strict planning controls are applied to protect the rural character of the landscape surrounding Aberdeen with the intention of: (i) maintaining the identity of communities within Aberdeen and the surrounding settlements by clearly defining their boundaries and preventing coalescence; (ii) maintaining the landscape setting of the City; and (iii) providing countryside for recreational purposes.

A designation for land around certain cities and large built-up areas, which aims to keep this land permanently open or largely undeveloped. The purposes of the green belt is to: check the unrestricted sprawl of large built up areas prevent neighbouring towns from merging safeguard the countryside from encroachment preserve the setting and special character of historic towns assist urban regeneration by encouraging the recycling of derelict and other urban land Green belts are defined in a local planning authority's development plan.
In United Kingdom town planning, the green belt is a concept for controlling metropolitan growth, first introduced around London by minister of housing Duncan Sandys via Circular 42/55.
A green belt or greenbelt is a policy or land use designation used in land use planning to retain areas of largely undeveloped, wild, or agricultural land surrounding or neighbouring urban areas. Similar concepts are greenways or green wedges which have a linear character and may run through an urban area instead of around it.
