Map of Current Threats to London's Green Belt

Note that the data on this map has not yet been updated to reflect the results of our 2022 research report.

The map below is being developed as part of a partnership project between the London Green Belt Council and CPRE branches in Herts, Essex, Kent, Beds, Bucks, Berks, Surrey and London. It shows the threats that we are aware of to London’s Green Belt. If you know of any threats not marked on this map – please tell us about them by emailing , calling 020 7253 0300 or completing the  New Threats form MS Word  or pdf.

By a ‘threat’ we mean that there is a proposal to build on a protected Green Belt site or the Green Belt protection is at risk of being removed.

We know that there is no need to build on Green Belt land: brownfield ‘opportunity areas’ in the capital alone could provide 300,000 new homes. So please take action: write to local councillors, MPs, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government or even the Prime Minister to ask them to halt these threats right now. If you would like help with this please contact us.

Move the map by clicking on it and moving your mouse or swipe sideways. Zoom with scrollwheel, pinch or swipe vertically (browser/OS dependent).  Tap the purple dots to view details about each threat.

The information in this map is as accurate and up to date as possible. Data comes from Local Authority Green Belt Reviews; Draft Local Plans and adopted Local Plans; planning applications; Local Authority Strategic Housing Market Assessments / Strategic Land Availability Assessments and other sources. The map is not complete as it only shows the threats we know about. It is a constantly changing picture. Map contains OS data © Crown copyright and database right 2015.
