Dear Editor,

Not that it will make any difference but I object to our green spaces and green belt land, along with good arable productive land, being concreted over to build houses.

Our 'green and pleasant land' is our precious heritage which should, indeed must, be preserved for future generations.

There is an abundance of eye-sores; derelict brown field land which would be improved by being used to build new houses and there should be more incentives or regulation to ensure they are redeveloped.

However, such sites, which require more clearance and preparation work, are regarded by developers as an inconvenient profit-limiting prospect.
