The CRPE, the campaign group to protect rural England, says it disagrees with Sir Simon Jenkins who's called for future new homes to be built in towns and cities and not rural areas.
Sir Simon is chairman of the National Trust and says children raised in the countryside have no automatic right to live near their parents when they leave home.
Kate Houghton of the CPRE said: "We want a living countryside and if people are going to work in the countryside and keep strong family ties then we need to make sure there are affordable houses."
