Within the UK 90% of the population are based in urban areas. Over the next 25 years the Government has estimated there will be a need for a further 4 million homes. The pressure on greenbelt has seen Government set a target of 60% for new homes to be built on recycled land. Many urban areas within the UK are run-down and suffer from poor design, traffic and industrial pollution. The Government has commissioned an Urban Task Force to address the sustainability and regeneration issues within the built environment and a final report from the Group, with recommendations, was published in June 1999.
