The National Trust is currently lobbying the government, and their 3.6 million members, to ensure that proposed changes to planning rules do not result in unchecked housing development on green belt land.

The National Trust is also going ahead, according to Private Eye, with the “Cliveden Village” housing development of its own on its Cliveden Estate in leafy Buckinghamshire, on land that was donated to the Trust by Lord Astor with the stipulation that it was never turned into a “speculator’s building estate”.
