Sir Patrick Abercrombie – “It is a matter for serious thought…”

Category: News April 1st, 2012 by mbc

While reading up on the response of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) I came across this quotation that is particularly pertinent to the current state of the economy, planning climate and the challenges faced by rural communities:

“It is a matter for serious thought that at periods of financial stress it is always beauty that is sacrificed upon the altar of expediency.”

Sir Patrick Abercrombie, co-founder of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England.

Sir Patrick Abercrombie seems a fascinating character, however there isn’t much information about him available on-line, I’d love to find some more sources of information, quotations etc…

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…

like a bird’s nest be a thing of great beauty
I’m not sure that the barn resembles any kind of bird’s nest, but I do appreciate Roger Deakin’s words on the beauty to be found in the ordinary.

The gallery on this site has frankly been a bit of a mess since I messed up my Flickr account and started loading photos locally and also into Picasa.
