Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

How pleasing on the eye that will be.  Consider though how many terraced houses are being converted into apartments, as well as new apartments everywhere.  We've got so many apartment blocks going up all over Cardiff at the moment.  The whole city is a construction site.

Housing isn't being connected to the communities that live in them.  We often talk about social issues that we've arrived at because the individual is sovereign these days and 'community' and the collective go out of the window. More effective town planning could play a role in regenerating and strengthening communities. Instead any spare bit of land gets another block dumped on it, without any connection being made to amenities, schools, shops, leisure, transport.
