I must say Im really not in favour of demolishing newly built developments in principle, unless they have really bad sick buliding syndrome or some other incredibly extenuating circumstamces. If each tonne of concrete is responsible for the relase of 1 tonne of CO2, this strikes me as utterly unsustainable.

We all know that Zoe built shit – but does that mean that these (relatively dense) units cant be retrofitted? Just how big a carbon footprint does Carroll want to bequeth to the world?

The Maltings are no prize-winner, but are they that bad are that demolition is the only option? And if they are, why should we then expect the same developer to any better on the same site? Surely Carroll should just live with consequences – or else retrofit. I remain to be convinced about this.
