Re: Re: Government-by-numbers
……..I do agree however that people at the moment will want to build in the countryside and should not be ‘forced’ into towns and cities ….at the moment there are no real alternatives……….If proper neighbourhoods are built in these towns rather than developer estates then they should have the power to attract people. ……..
This is where the anti Rural development groups fail. From a rural dwellers viewpoint, the only available alternative to living in the country is a 1000sq.ft. “Townhouse” amongst a jungle of 400 identical “townhouses”.
To encourage people into villages & towns something more than the current model of the housing estate is required – and until a working model is in place the pro rural development people will remain just that.
