I have a series of posts on DontLookNow.org looking for solutions to the housing crisis. Solutions should be cheap, friendly and don’t screw the world up. A good solution is car-free estates of wooden prefabs with starter homes for £20,000.

Add market gardens …

to new prefab estates made with modern cross-ply timber…

 

Could this change the way we live?

I hope so.

Anyway please look at Housing – part 16: Cheap, neighbourly and doesn’t screw the world up. (Especially the section “A new Ministry of Works … & starter homes for £20,000”.)

Also there was a EC study commissioned by Carlo Ripa di Meana which concluded “the car-free city costs between two and five times less”


And remember …

Prefabs are for People

– People liked prefabs

– Multistorey mass housing failed

– The planners didn’t notice

– They will get it wrong again
