Regarding previously developed land in the countryside, it may be appropriate to include support for community facilities, but only with a strong emphasis on sites being well related to settlements in a way that active travel (walking and cycling) is both possible and an attractive proposition. Residential development seems less appropriate, and any new development in a Green Belt context should be carefully considered.
