Appeal to use land for children.

HUNDREDS of acres of land between the countryside and towns are underused and overlooked, campaign groups warned. The Countryside Agency and Groundwork said around each urban area there is a hinterland made up of up to 20% of the total land area that should be a place for children to play in, improve health, grow local food and provide sustainable jobs.

The groups are calling for politicians,local communities, planners and businesses to create a vision for the future of the rural/urban fringe.

A consultation on the issue was also being launched.
