Complaints Grow Over Increasing "Ugliness" of Paris
Critics of Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe and French President Sarkozy have held a seminar in Paris attacking the increasing "urbanilisation" of the city.
Paris, rated by many as the most beautiful and romantic city in the world, is being white-anted by large, poor-quality and clashing developments, speakers said.
Of particular concern is the proposal to de-regulate development around stations on a new circular metro line at the Peripherique (highway ring) that surrounds the French capital.
