Beauty in the Built environment debate (Oct 30th)

Create Streets’ research into public preferences was cited in a House of Commons debate on 30 November by John Hayes MP on the importance of beauty in the built environment. Speaking in the same debate, the Housing Minister, Kit Malthouse MP’s response echoed very many of our own points: “We are therefore supporting high-quality, high-density housing such as mansion blocks, mews houses and terraced streets, typical of the English urban townscape and rural context with which we are all familiar.”
