Build, Build, Build

Peter Gibbs looks into housing developments and asks how we respond in an environmentally positive way to Boris Johnson's call to arms to "build build build” post lockdown.

With an ever greater demand for more housing, and Boris Johnson calling for the country to "build buld bulid" post lockdown, Peter Gibbs looks at current trends in house-building.

And how could developers be encouraged to build in a way which incorporates nature rather than squeezing it out?

Produced for BBC Audio in Bristol by Emma Campbell.
