Prince plans Poundbury-style 'urban village' for South Wales
Prince Charles is planning another Poundburystyle development, this time at Llandarcy in South Wales. The £450 million project, being hailed as 'one of the most ambitious ever undertaken in the UK', will create 2,500 new homes along the concept of the 'urban village' championed by the Prince. As at Poundbury, modern architecture will be eschewed in favour of 'traditional designs, building on the vernacular of the area but put in a modern setting'.
