Description

Are you allowed to choose the colour of your house, the height of your grass, or more importantly can you have a garden gnome?

In this podcast, we delve into the world of town planning. We discuss the evolution of urban planning, its pros and cons, and whether new cities have it right or if there are still lessons that can be learned from old towns. We also look at how town planning can affect people's happiness and examine what should be the key considerations when it comes to planning a new town.

A few things we mentioned in this podcast:
