Detail

The latest national statistics on the extent of the green belt in England were released under the auspices of the UK Statistics Authority on 30 November 2012.

The main points of the data are:

  • the extent of the designated green belt land in England in 2011 to 2012 was estimated at 1,639,410 hectares, about 13% of the land area of England
  • overall there has been a decrease of 130 hectares from the revised 2010 to 2011 green belt, due to 3 authorities who have adopted new plans in which they have changed the boundaries of the green belt; this represents a decrease of less than 0.01% in the total green belt area
  • since these statistics were first compiled for 1997, there has been an increase in the area of green belt after taking account of the redesignation of some green belt as part of the New Forest National Park in 2005
