Bigger Better Faster More (September 2005)
Bigger Better Faster More (September 2005). This new report from Policy Exchange shows that in countries where local councils have to "compete for every inhabitant" they successfully plan for better and cheaper homes in sustainable, green communities. Authors Alan W. Evans and Oliver Marc Hartwich launch their next report Bigger Better Faster More - Why some countries plan better than others. The authors visited Germany, Switzerland, Ireland and Australia to investigate how these countries plan for development. Like the UK, all four countries have experienced pressure on their housing markets because of growing populations, smaller households, longer lifespans, immigration and increases in wealth. Some have adjusted to these changing conditions and continue to provide bigger and more affordable homes in green cities. But others have not.
