The 21st-century village: Sarah Featherstone and Jennifer Ross on VeloCity
Ep 14. AJ Climate Champions with Hattie Hartman. Architect Sarah Featherstone and planner Jennifer Ross, both members of the all-female VeloCity team, describe their 21st-century strategy for the English countryside: less cars, more bikes and new housing in village clusters linked to rail stations.
Ross explains why we desperately need a joined-up approach to spatial planning that focuses on villages clustered within a 7-mile radius to lure people out of their cars and onto bicycles and footpaths, and Featherstone reveals early proposals for Blenheim Estate which include Passivhaus housing and reinstated cycleways to facilitate school runs.
