Policy Exchange report: "Tower blocks 'should be bulldozed'"

"After twenty years of strong reaction against the multi-storey and high-rise estates of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, policy-makers have decided we again need to build large high-rise or multi-storey developments. We are in danger of repeating the errors of the past."

"High-rise housing blocks should be bulldozed and replaced with terraced homes, to help tackle social problems and remove 'no-go' areas, a think-tank report has argued.

"About 140,000 households with children live on the second floor or above in England, despite evidence that multi-storey flats attract higher crime rates and social breakdown, said the paper published by the centre-right Policy Exchange.

"... A spokesman for the Department for Communities and Local Government said:
"Ministers have scrapped the last government's Whitehall targets, which forced local authorities to build high-density flats, rather than family homes and attractive terraces."
