Camapigners say that an area the size of 180 football pitches could be taken away from the capital's green belt should current plans get the go-ahead.
Redbridge council have released plans to allow development on 130 hectares of land which currently has the protected status. The East London Borough say they need the space to meet tough housing targets.
The Council has explored a range of alternative development options and has undertaken an exhaustive search for suitable development land. There is not enough brownfield land available in the Borough to meet this challenging housing target.
The draft Redbridge Local Plan is supported by a Green Belt Review. The Review concludes that some of the Borough's green belt no longer meets the five purposes of green belt as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework.
Public Consultation on the plans close today.
