Farrell hits out at balance of own housing design panel

Comment

until the Govt grasps the nettle that 'the market' is not the be all and end all of the housing supply chain, there will be nothing but an endless repetition of past stupidities. the central issue is land use: the 'market' has it that what every custiomer wants is a little diddy house with a pitched roof and a garage and a driveway and loads of road to enable the purchaser to drive to everywhere. And they can't have it! not in any sensible and responsible society. Instead of being held to ransome by the Planners and their cow-towing to the cinservation lobby they should be redeveloping the old slums and getting far more people living in the cities in apartmnt blocks. Out with the slate tented roofs, in with the roof gardens and the solar panels. Simon Norris Architect OXFORD
