greenbelt update on all-party parliamentary group (appg), on land management, westminster june 2009

The All Party Parliamentary Group is a non statutory group of MP's interested in Land Management Companies and their role on new residential developments.

Greenbelt received an invitation to contribute to the group as the company is recognised as a leader in this field. No other Land Management Company received an invitation as far as we know.

Alex Middleton and Richard Taylor, Directors of the Greenbelt Group, voluntarily accepted and attended in early May 2008 with other contributors including The Law Society of Scotland. 7 MP's were present including Greenbelt constituency MP Mohammad Sarwar and the focus of discussion was on the home buying experience, role of developer, planner, solicitor and Greenbelt in providing secure and fair land management arrangements for new developments.

A full transcript of the contents of the meeting was taken and will presumably be made available to public.

This Group intended to prepare a report on their feedback/recommendations from contributors and forward a copy to housing and communities department of Parliament. The Chairman of the meeting gave assurances that any report prepared would be circulated to those parties which contributed however, as at June 2009, Greenbelt have not received sight of a copy and understand that a report has not yet been published.
