Some of the area's most certainly are not "protected" as they are actively
being discussed for development. Also although it's called Green Belt it
includes many areas that also have other designations, such as Country
Parks, Golf Courses Recreation Grounds, etc etc etc.


I would prefer we get the underlying landuse mapped in first before we
blindly import these areas as Green Belt. And as you say though,
clarification on the licence would be needed before we did anything anyway.

As noted the resolution is not ideal, but the issue with gaps / overlaps
between the areas is a rendering error on the telegraphs website only. The
main issue however is the lack of clear licence. Perhaps try contacting the
Department for Communities and Local Government and asking them.

As for a tag try "designation=green belt". Perhaps you could also add a
protected_area tag as per the following proposal:
