Local authorities have bin going mad!
Whilst many architects, urban planners, housing associations and developers try to design the homes, towns and cities of the future, they are frequently hamstrung by the regulatory hurdles that are focused on the accommodation of waste management. Giant wheelie bins fill our pavements, louvered doors dominate pavement frontages, and the spaces of our streets are oriented around the turning circle of a rubbish truck.
With a lack of clear planning policy, it seems that the mundane and everyday has taken control of the creative place making involved in housing design, pushing us towards sterile blocks, with paved wastelands between home and curb. Things were not always this way though, and there are some who refuse to accept refuse; those who are willing to fight for a ‘less rubbish’ and cleaner future. How can we extricate ourselves from the debris of bureaucracy and create places that are designed around how we want to live rather than where we put the recycling? It’s time for some trash talk!
