Why I don’t like planners or developers:
Five years later:
These photographs were taken about five years apart. The first comes from Google Maps Steeetview and the second was taken by me a few days ago.
It wouldn’t have taken much to remove that one house from the development to significantly improve the visual amenity (a planning term!).
What we see around us each day is very important and contributes significantly to our well-being. Planning and design are very important to us whether we realise it or not.
This is a good example of bad planning. But certainly not one of the worst.
I think developers should be obliged to produce 3D computer models of all their developments to ensure that they harm the visual landscape as little as possible.
