CPRE’s response to the Liverpool City Region Spatial Development Strategy

2nd February 2021

CPRE the countryside charity welcomed the opportunity to contribute to Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s first draft Spatial Development Strategy.

CPRE wants the Liverpool City Region SDS to best protect and enhance important rural areas and urban greenspace. We want new jobs and homes to be planned on sustainable development principles, making the most of existing brownfield land in our towns and cities and relying on walking and cycling at the neighbourhood level. The Green Belt has a vital role to play in keeping our land permanently open. Key issues raised were:

· Land in the Green Belt should remain in the Green Belt.
· Environmental capacity and value should be a priority in the future
· Maintain future food security
· Health and well-being must be valued
