    • Abstract:
      The article reports on the proposal of Communities and Local Government Secretary Hazel Blears to prevent urban centres in Great Britain from becoming ghost towns during the recession. Blears urged city councils to take up local development orders (LDOs) as part of measures for urban development planning. She hopes that the proposal will allow councils to implement orders with more speed and flexibility.
