Very true, Chris.  It shows how much consideration was given to people
during the sixties slum clearance programmes, replacing them(slums) with
even higher density housing.  Cram them all in and you will get more
problems.  Seems so obvious to most people as a gut reaction without having
to embark on endless research.  The object lesson for planners is create
housing where there is enough room for trees to be planted and grow to their
full potential.
