Film-maker Richard Macer explores the decision by the government to free up the green belt to developers. Macer meets the developers who are changing the face of rural Britain.
How do you mend the broken housing market? The country needs to build 300,000 homes a year just to keep up with demand. In this series, film-maker Richard Macer heads to one of our most expensive counties, Oxfordshire, where vast areas of once protected countryside are being turned into housing. With remarkable access to councillors, developers, architects and campaigners and filmed over nine months, he asks if building these vast estates is a solution to the crisis.
In this episode, Macer is with architects, the developers who are changing the face of rural Britain, with the people trying to create a sense of community from scratch, and the pioneers making these new mini-utopias their homes. As one architect of a new development next to the village of Long Hanborough puts it, 'No one has a right to a view - unfortunately. Things change, and we have to get used to that in Britain.'.
