Cycling around the county and constantly viewing ugly developers destroying anykind of greenbelt left and now it's NO joking matter.

I didn't agree for the RAPE of the British countryside.

The countryside has quite a lot of Rape in it right now. Fields full of yellow. Beautiful.

But some of the architecture of these new builds are pretty disgusting. Whoever the hell approves it must need their head seeing to.

Exactly. I just really don't understand why there isn't more redevelopment of run down and abandoned areas rather than building on new land. Surely knocking down old s#!t holes and rebuilding is cheaper anyway than building an entire new area and the infrastructure for it?

Cost and information.

Infilling in urban areas, which may need demolition, decontamination, awkward plot sizes is more expensive than two flat fields of identikit housing. And the purpose of house building in Britain is to maximise shareholder returns and Chief Exec pay so the small scale difficult sites are a no-no. And smaller builders can’t afford up front costs.

The second is information. Local authorities are awful at knowing all their vacant plots. In turn, potential developers don’t know what is out there. And planners struggle to know the impact of urban development on local utilise and transport networks.

Innovation is happening in terms of business models, construction methods and digital planning so the barriers to urban infilling will be coming down.

Google ‘future of planning’ work by the Future Cities Catapult. Some of my recent work on a commission for them will be launched at the PlanTech 2018 conference.

In terms of funding, my own view is local authorities should be able to take control of derelict sites and encouraged to invest in preparing difficult urban plots in return for being able to keep 100% of the local taxes which the Treasury currently takes chunks off before handing back in grants. As high housing demand areas (ie where lots of jobs are) would have more tax to keep, the incentive to increase supply is bigger in areas with more demand.

Just been around Ashchurch...I believe Tewkesbury Borough Council main interest is to destroy the countryside.

in Alderton we have seen 72 new houses in the last few years and have had two planning applications turned down thankfully but we are getting geared up to fight two more applications. its crazy. there is one bus a day to Cheltenham and back that makes commuting difficult, so more cars on the road.
The Tewkesbury plan dictates 800 odd houses for the 12 service villages of which Alderton is one, so using simple maths we have had our share, Bare in mind those 800 houses had to be built by the year 2031 !!!
