The Arup green belt study should be respected at MX51 excluded.  Although new development in the greenbelt should respect our "unique landscapes" this should not be taken to mean by developers that the housing target can be best achieved by very low density development in the greenbelt as this uses more greenfield greenbelt and increases travel distances.

Pleas for bungalows for the elderly in the greenbelt should be listened to with caution.  They restrict affordability, waste land and are not necessary for disabled living in the 21st century.
