ok so your greenbelt land is the area of land around a town or city, where building is restricted, hence it is green (forests, fields etc.... this can be seen on the 'burgess model', which divy's up the land use in a city. An example of this would be London, where (generally speaking) the city is contained by the M25, and large industry stops, leading to fields and open spaces.

it has reduced the pace of urbanisation because planners who wish to develop new industry are often unable to build on the green belt, and instead have to re-develop derelict sites, which takes lots of money and time.

obviously you will need to elaborate on that

ok thanks for the help and summing it up quickly. this is what i wrote ( i will add in your points too):

less people are choosing to ive in the city as the greenbelt doesnt allow u to build on certian parts of land. so beuase land is cheaper and you can build there peole choose to live in rural areas and not move to the city.

yes, thats mainly the reason.... also as country's become more and more developed, they start de-industrialising, hence DE-URBANISATION TAKES PLACE and as a result, the richer you are, the more money you can spend on a house in the leafy suburbs.... eg barnes, twickenham and Richmond in london (very affluent areas, lots of green, quite close to central ldn)
