The UK Green Belt was formed by law in 1949 to prevent speculative ribbon development around London and other large cities in the United Kingdom.
The first records of our EBGBS date from 1959 when the battles against building on Woodcock Hill on the south side of Borehamwood started and the Woodcock Hill Society was founded under Dr Lewis Wilde. We have been contesting Green Belt and conservation issues to the present day.
"Our aim is to preserve as much as possible of the peaceful green and pleasant countryside,
which has been left to us after the ravages of road and building developments." Ann Goddard, Chair EBGBS
