Princess Royal: let villages develop organically; stop building cookie-cutter developments

February 24, 2014

According to the Daily Express:

Instead of large-scale new towns being developed, Anne said that existing villages should take many of the 240,000 homes so desperately needed in the UK.

Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) welcomed the royal’s intervention saying it is important to have a “living countryside” with villages which grew “organically”.

However her opinions are at odds with the government who is championing the creation of two new towns…

Anne said that by building between six and twelve homes around a village, the local community could thrive.

She added that those new families would help keep local schools, shops and pubs viable.
