Security fencing to stay on green belt land

Security fencing to stay on green belt land
Planners in Queensbury, West Yorkshire, have ruled that the high security fencing that was put on green belt land without permission will be able to stay up.

Whilst objectors say that the fence ruins the views of the area around the television relay site at Royd Line, on Roper Lane in Queensbury, the council has decided to allow the fence to stay up.

The Bradford and District Advertiser reported that officials at Bradford County authority approved the application to keep the 2.1-metre-high fence even though it is classed as an "inappropriate development in the green belt". However, councillors decided that there was "very special circumstances" to justify it.

A council officer told the source: "The need to secure the site, in order to maintain the efficient running of a public service is deemed to be sufficient justification in this instance, particularly when considered alongside the limited nature of what is being applied for."

It is usually prohibited to build on green belt land as it used to protect the natural wildlife around towns and cities maintaining a designated space for forestry and agricultural needs.
