  • Support for the Green Belt: desire to value, enhance and preserve green spaces.
  • New housing should be limited and within the existing built up area. The site at RAF Halton should be developed appropriately.
  • The imaginative and sustainable redevelopment of RAF Halton, supported by the necessary infrastructure, could be of great potential benefit meeting housing needs and the providing facilities.
  • Considerable opposition to development on any of the suggested sites given their position within the Green Belt and based on the public desire to preserve the Green Belt.
