Uxcester...

There was quite a lot of press coverage a few weekends ago about the awarding of the Woolfson Prize to a plan to build a series of garden cities.?
Nick Clegg spoke about the possibility of garden cities 'solving' some of the problems of urban areas. This has been followed up in numerous locations and newspapers over the last few weeks since the awarding of the prize.

You can read the final report by CLICKING THIS LINK (PDF download)

p.77 of the report starts to move into one of the contentious areas: the movement into Green Belt land, which is something that has been picked up by quite a few of the articles.

This is an area which most GCSE and 'A' level Urban topics would also refer to, and the report would therefore make a useful addition to the resources used for teaching these courses.
