A Full Life in the Country: The Sudbury & District Survey & Plan

£5.99

Product description

"A Full Life in the Country describes a practical exercise in positive country planning; carried out in an area typical of many parts of rural England. 'The fundamental assumption', says the author, 'is the maintenance of a prosperous agriculture.' Facing the problem of the drift from the countryside due to the attraction of larger towns, he surveys the facts and puts forward a conscientious detailed solution - and a challenge. Town and Country are complimentary. Market towns and countryside have developed together and their future must be considered together. Settlements of different sizes came into existence naturally in the past, as the result of differing functions and to satisfy different needs. Means must now be sought to bring about relationships among those settlements in such a way as to meet the wider and more varied range of present day human requirements. Planning, moreover, being concerned with the lives of men and women, should be 'everybody's business': there must be no idea that local wishes might, in the new conditions, be ignored or over-ridden merely for the sake of administrative convenience."

Book in fair condition - the dust jacket is damaged and the previous owner has inscribed the first page.
