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: starter homes for £20,000.
Improve these prefabs with modern cross-ply timber…
and add market gardens.
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”
