Last November The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community launched a report in response to the growing public momentum and political will to address the country’s housing needs. The report is entitled Housing Communities: What People Want. http://www.housing-communities.org/
The Foundation states: “Communities around the UK are concerned about out-of-context, inappropriately scaled buildings, poor architectural design and have experienced the dire end-results of design processes that do not consult local people properly”.
