Asked whether the PM agreed with the Chancellor’s views on the greenbelt, the PMOS said that the Chancellor was explaining the current system. Councils should look within existing rules to see whether they could do more to support development and growth. The government recently set out its position in the National Policy Planning Framework and the Chancellor was not proposing changes to that. He was setting out flexibilities within existing rules, and ways in which we could speed up the current process.
