Public space and human rights

18 Mar 2008 by Karl Hallam

'In any civilised society access to high-quality public space should be a fundamental human right. Everyone should be able to see a tree from their window. Everyone should have a doorstep they can sit on. Every home should be within five minutes' walk of a bus stop and a place for children to play. Everyone should live within 10 minutes' walk of a really good public space' says Richard Rogers and Cadence agrees wholeheartedly.

Other things he says that our experience leads us to support include:

He also suggests that all London Boroughs should 'produce detailed studies of existing space along with suggestions as to how it can be expanded, improved and maintained'.

Why restrict it to London?

Even if it is to merely 'appear' being<a href=""> taprsanrent</a>, it is still a huge thing in India. Most people around here are highly intolerant of uncomfortable questions. Some fly into a rage on being asked, others insist on vetting the questions before a public exchange. A few have the power and the ego get the questioner arrested as well!-------By the way, the (randomly generated, I suppose) word verification image below reads "RSS LAME"! I smell an anti-Hindu conspiracy! Beware, all you Mlenchhas out there!

U should write more opninois, seriously! Its nice and refreshing to hear some sane and sensible opninois. Though i would say, like breeds like. When Kejriwal enters politics, he will turn into a political animal hungry for more power. I have never heard of anyone entering the pit' and coming out of it the same. They are either consumed or turn.The system is such that voting is not really a weapon, its more like gambling. The house always wins!I might sound pessimistic but as an Indian I've grown callous with the never ending disappointments with the country. [url=]qqzysdyod[/url] [link=]ypldyrzfti[/link]
