New garden city plans: 'I feel sorry for Bicester locals'

Bicester in Oxfordshire has been chosen as the site for the coalition's second new garden city, government sources have confirmed.

Up to 13,000 new homes are due to be built on the edge of the town, as part of the coalition's plans to help deal with the UK's housing shortage.

Helen Marshall, director of the Oxfordshire branch of Campaign to Protect Rural England, said that "you have to feel a bit sorry for people who may have moved there 10 years ago thinking that it was a small market town."
