Should Britain build on its green spaces to solve the housing crisis?

Should Britain build on its green spaces?

An article from 2017 in "The Conversation", discussing the deficit in housebuilding and discussing whether green belts should be released for housing. Argues that, rather than releasing green belt on an ad hoc basis, there should be national and local strategic planning to maximise the benefits of the green belt and to identify the best sites for development.
