Inept Planning Is Threatening England

Inept planning is threatening the very foundation of England's towns and cities. Tony Blair must support "good planning."

"The physiques and souls of our urban centres are fragmented because of an essentially ad hoc approach to redevelopment on almost every scale, a meltdown condition exacerbated by the fact that there has been no significant investment in planning or urban development skills for decades. And this despite the fact that – after Bangladesh and Holland – Britain is the world's most densely populated country."
