Detail

The latest national statistics on the estimates of the area of designated green belt land in local authorities in England were released under the auspices of the UK Statistics Authority on 15 April 2011.

The main points from this latest release are:

  • the area of designated green belt land in England at 31 March 2011 was estimated at 1,639,540 hectares, about 13% of the land area of England
  • between March 2010 and March 2011, boundary changes in 3 authorities (Enfield, Slough and Vale of White Horse) resulted in a small increase (less than 5 hectares) in the total area of green belt
  • over the longer term, since these statistics were first compiled for 1997, there has been an increase in the area of green belt after taking account of the re-designation of some green belt as part of the New Forest National Park in 2005
