Making higher densities work

HigherDensitiesThis is a booklet from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) about making higher densities work.

It is government policy, especially in the south-east, to insist on more houses per hectacre.  This is frequently not well received!

This booklet  points out the potential advantages and also argues that many of perceptions about high-density housing tend to focus only on some of the unsuccessful models of the past ignoring the fact that higher densities properly managed can have real advantages.

Just how applicable this is to a rural setting is for you to decide.  Certainly the increasing tendency to 3-storey buildings would have major visual-impact consequences in Bloxham
