I don't want to attack the new interest in garden cities. I really don't. But without a parallel programme of increasing densities in the inner parts of the biggest cities (in the manner of Barcelona) any new greenfield sites will simply become dormitory towns. That is what happened with Letchworth and with Welwyn. What's more, lacking the transport infrastructure for a slew of new dormitory towns, we would be playing to another of this country's weak points.
The TCPA must propose plans which are less a pragmatic compromise with the status quo and more in line with what they surely know is the best way forward. I'm tired of the green vs brownfield argument being presented as a zero sum game.
