There are fears for Cornwall's green spaces as new planning laws are revealed.

Ministers want to relax rules on developments to help the economy grow.

But campaigners reckon it is carte blanche to build on the countryside and agricultural land.

Duchy community planner Peter Burton said, "People need to ask the question at what point is this going to stop. When are we going to actually say enough is enough and start living in a different way that doesn't compromise future generations.

"We need to really make some hard decisions now about what future we want for ourselves. Whether we want to be increasingly urbanised, which is where this relaxation of planning laws will take us. There's only a finite amount of land available to be developed and every field that you concrete over is one less field to grow food on or to just enjoy for its own sake. Or whether to fight for a different one."
