Reader's digest

  • Comment

Carnivore members of the RIBA are out of tune with the ethos and aspirations of the institute, judging by its new brochure on sustainable communities, subtitled Quality with quantity. Not content with the 12 key requirements for these communities identified by John Prescott's department, Portland Place has added six of its own, including 'the need to use local resources and skills both in the delivery and during the life of the community, including food production and distribution'. And it quotes approvingly a paragraph from 'One Planet Living' thinking on food: 'Low meat and dairy lifestyle, increased fruit and vegetable intake, promotion of local and organic food, less packaging.' We look forward to the National Farmers Union response on the issue, no doubt giving advice on site layouts and product specification.
