This link will take you to the draft PPS - for some light reading!
Nothing on the specific sites in there yet - there will be further publications including Sustainability Assessments which will give more specific information.
A quick read through shows that Ford fails on the aspect on which I have been concentrating; employment. The PPS says that the eco-towns should provide at least one job per household. Even the Ford Airfield Vision Groups unjustifiably optimistic target is only 4,000 jobs. So that's a fail then is it? Let's wait for the FAVG Public Mis-revelations Department to magic up another 1,000 jobs in Father Christmas' grotto!
