The Government recognises that there are many diverse uses of our land that we must anticipate for the future: growing food, planting trees, building homes, natural habitats, land for infrastructure and industry, and leisure and recreation. Defra Ministers and officials are working closely with their counterparts in other relevant Departments with influences on land use to develop the scope and content of the Land Use Framework.
