Where to build?
I liked this sequence of maps from Audacity showing land use restrictions in England. The website contains other interesting facts and figures, although I am unconvinced that the solution to our current housing problem lies in forming 250 New Towns. I would rather see the planning system more responsive to price signals, a reform which would tend to favour development near to our (relatively) successful urban areas.
