The major parties were punished in the May 2019 local elections – but it wasn’t only about Brexit.  The London Green Belt Council analysed the results and found that the Green Belt was equally or more important in the southeast.

Research conducted by Enfield RoadWatch, CPRE-London and The Enfield Society in the London Borough of Enfield found space for at least 37,000 new homes on previously developed land. This means there is no need to build on precious Green Belt land, especially around Crews Hill, as suggested by the Borough Council in its current draft Local Plan.  The findings have been published in Space to Build in Enfield
