Is the green belt doomed? One of the great creations of postwar British planning – the concept of a national park within reach of every city-dweller – is fast losing friends.
Abolish the green belt. Now.
For here’s the effect of it.
That’s the slum housing on Whiteway in Bath. Chicken coops for the proles.
That’s Englishcombe, about 400 yards away.
The chicken coops are built because Englishcombe is part of the green belt.
The proles must live in hovels so that the middle classes can stare at a fucking field.
God I hate planners.
