Poundbury model gets Hill sympathy

Planning minister Keith Hill indicated sympathy for Prince Charles' urban design agenda by visiting Poundbury in Dorset last week.

The Prince gave Hill a guided tour of the model village in an attempt to provide inspiration for the 200,000 houses the government is planning to build in the South East.

The village's future development was put in jeopardy earlier this month when Dorset council turned down plans for an apartment development after locals had objected to the proposed density.
