Residents Request High Density in their Neighborhoods

Surveys find that residents in the UK want high density development.

"The results of consultation in Ashford by masterplanner Urban Initiatives revealed strong support for high-density, high-rise development around the town's train station rather than two other options presented, which included sprawling new development on the outskirts."

"The revelation comes as a major survey in the South-east, released this week, further challenged the perception among local politicians that they will be voted out if they approve high-density housing."
