whats wrong with this picture

Welcome to Sherford, the Prince of Wales’s south Devon ecotown for 12,000 people, which has recently been granted planning permission. With a typical car based high street.

I read recently if you take the basic elements of a sustainable community – living, shopping, working, leisure etc and move them outside of the walk zone, then you have to stitch the community back together with the car. And once you have done that, the elements can be anywhere and everywhere, and you no longer have a sustainable community.
