Kidlington is a great place to live. It has a fantastic bus service, surrounded by accessible and beautiful countryside, a great open-plan and pedestrianised shopping centre that is not a mall with some great local shops residents can be proud of.That's my take. Soon, in fact, I will be moving from Kidlington to nearby Freeland, and I will sorely miss this place. Amongst other things I will miss the market stalls on Friday and Saturday that I can walk to. So what is your take? How would you sum up this hamlet. If you have a viewpoint drop me a line.
- No matter how many new houses are built to be eco-friendly this can only make a small dent in the fact that the UK's existing houses are very poor on the eco-scale. Surely we would be seem more serious as a society about Climate Change if we addressed the larger subject rather than be seen to tinker round at the edges.
- An eco-town sounds like a grand idea that has some poor downsides. To me THE primary goal of an eco-town is to reduce travel time to workplaces. That is as a society I feel we should stop building housing estates separate from industrial estates. Instead they should be mixed up. Get the workplace close to the home so we can all bicycle.
- Instead the current eco-town concepts seem to me to focus too much on houses on the fringe of towns and cities necessitating new transport links, thus altogether increasing our combined carbon footprints.
