There are two larger rural settlements (that is excluded from the Green Belt) Lingfield in the south-east and Smallfield in the south-west.

There are also a number of villages and some other smaller settlements and areas of sporadic development in the Green Belt. The central part of Woldingham is also excluded from the Green Belt and forms a “detached” built-up area. About 94% of the area is Green Belt.
