THE GUARDIAN: Why is Britain so bad at planning cities?

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 11/4/2019

Description

Here is something you might try if you live in Britain. Go to your favourite urban place, whether it be the centre of a large city or a small market town. Close your eyes, turn around three times and walk in that direction for 15 minutes (or an hour if you’re in London). I can predict with a reasonable degree of confidence that the place where you end up will be crap.
