    Abstract

    'Two out of three people living within the M25 consider it to be the natural boundary of London'. This was the findings from a survey conducted by MORI, 2004, to find out the opinions of Londoners about whether they understood the boundaries of the capital. With this statistic in mind, this project looks into whether London's urban area should be expanded towards London's orbital motorway, and whether the green belt can provide a solution to amend the gap between supply and demand for housing in South London. I will be looking into what the demand is for housing in South London, and looking at the background to why the demand is occurring. The study will also look into the perceived effect that the green belt is having an effect on housing supply within the South-east England, and whether or not the green belt is still meeting the original aims of why the green belt was established. The study then based on all the information on what is happening in the market, will make recommendations on how existing methods could be expanded or not and whether or not an expansion of London's urban area is needed in order to meet demand for housing.
