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

Urban flight is going to reverse. Soon and hard.

The policy of the council at that period was to issue enough housing permits to enable the primary school to keep four classes. I pointed out that this wasn't actually a good model of sustainability, but they were doing their best with the worldview they had.

And I'm not sure about the reversal of urban flight. The city they left has lots of cheap housing available; and there are no jobs there.
