I am a third year Planning student and I am thinking of ideas for my dissertation.
I have so far had positive feedback, in regard to researching whether the Green Belt policy actually creates/increases social exclusion, in terms of access to green space.
In this I mean such as the general consensus, that the wealthy tend to live in the suburbs and have easier access to greenspace, whereas the less well-off tend to live in the inner city areas (obviously there are exceptions to this). With the green belt restricting development and safeguarding the countryside, it increases pressure and intensifies development in urban areas, hence restriction of green space.
I was wondering what people think of this topic and what your views are on the question I've posed?
Thanks in advance for any feedback, it would be really appreciated.
