Bell on... how green space can boost quality of urban lifestyle

To Truro, for a meeting of the Town and Country Planning Association's (TCPA) commission for England's future. Some commissions never venture outside the M25 but the TCPA practices what it preaches, going out to listen to people on their home ground.

This is lottery money well spent. Contrast it with Doncaster's soon-to-close Earth Centre, where fun takes second place to a worthy message.
