Current Status Accepted
The proposed policy should be deleted as it is tantamount to introducing green belt restrictions in areas without the need to justify same in planning terms. Either the land is worthy of green belt status or else it remains countryside; the policy should be deleted.

There is a lack of clear guidance upon the appropriate criteria that would be used to make any such assessment and where this would differ from the countryside policies alone.
