We’re building again
The economy is picking up. We’re building again. But I’m worried the wrong people are going to build the wrong buildings, in the wrong places.
We have a housing crisis, that we can not deny, but this is not an excuse for an open season for volume house builders to forego considerations of community, environment and history.
Over the next few years, we are going to lose much of our environmental and cultural heritage to the bulldozers of housebuilders. I intend to do all I can to mitigate against this suburbanisation, and this plight begins here. I aim to detail every profligate proposal that will undermine our built environment and the values of an urban renaissance.
This is not for the Nimbys. This is about insisting those who plan and build are more innovative and listen to the communities which they serve.
