Leading Scottish architect slams PFI over hospitals crisis


Malcolm Fraser is absolutely right, and it's surely not just PFI in Scotland that's discreditable - yesterday I was on the receiving end of a Plymouth taxi-driver's diatribe about the problems - both constructionally and financially - facing new home buyers in the Sherford so-called New Town west of Plymouth. The developers of the much needed housing seem to have been busy watering down Prince Charles' advisers' design vision (strong arming the local planning authorities in the process) as well as failing to exercise meaningful quality control and playing the leasehold 'game' disgracefully. At least the latter is - I hope - impossible in Scotland.
