Commuters from East Anglia arrive at London's Liverpool Street station

The London commuter belt is the metropolitan area surrounding London from which it is possible to commute to work in the capital. It is alternatively known as the London metropolitan area[1] or the Southeast metropolitan area.[2] It should not be confused with Greater London or the Greater London Urban Area.

Green belt

Much of the undeveloped part of this area lies within a designated Metropolitan Green belt so further significant urban development is generally resisted by local authorities and the Planning Inspectorate. It was expected that had this policy not been adopted during the 1940s and 1950s the area now perceived as the commuter belt would have been fully urbanized by about 1980, and the administrative boundaries of Greater London might well have been more extensive. In city planning, the Green Belt is a concept for controlling metropolitan growth introduced around London, England by minister of housing Duncan Sandys via a Government Circular. ...

Future
