How To Build Houses And Save The Countryside

England has a housing crisis. We need to build many more new homes to house our growing population, but house building is controversial, particularly when it involves the loss of countryside. Addressing both sides of this critical debate, Shaun Spiers argues that to drive house building on the scale needed, government must strike a contract with civil society: in return for public support and acceptance of the loss of some countryside, it must guarantee high quality, affordable developments, in the right locations. Simply imposing development, as recent governments of all political persuasions have attempted, will not work. Focusing on house building and conservation politics in England, Spiers uses his considerable experience and extensive research to demonstrate why the current model doesn’t work, and why there needs to be both planning reform and a more active role for the state, including local government.

Vehicle Hill Tracks In Northern Scotland

This book is the most comprehensive account on the spread of vehicle tracks on hill land in northern Scotland that has occurred since the mid 1950s. It reviews timing, numbers, locations, distribution and impacts including run-off, soils and vegetation. Then it provides an impartial analysis of the generally low standards of construction and reinstatement, with recommendations to minimise impacts and maximise reinstatement. Included is a brief history of public concern about tracks. This culminated in a petition and debate in the Scottish Parliament and a decision by the Government Minister to hold a consultative review of planning procedures relevant to the control of tracks. The current book constitutes a sound factual baseline and store of technical information, richly illustrated with 58 colour photographs. This will benefit all, including the government, planning officers, landowners and the public who appreciate and value the Scottish countryside and wish to leave this priceless heritage in good heart for the benefit of future generations. Unfortunately a recent 'good practice guide' published by Scottish Natural Heritage is inadequate.

Gina Dillon comes from a long line of cops-and brilliant ones, at that. Following tradition, she is a forensics investigator with the FBI. But her world is turned upside down the day her younger brother, Jase, an undercover agent with the FBI, is nearly killed. After Jase's attempted murder, Gina agrees to impersonate the femme fatal who tortured him. She bears an uncanny resemblance to the psychotic assassin Rita Bennett. The FBI has discovered a plot to assassinate an assistant district attorney from Atlanta, and they need Gina to go undercover as Rita. Gina is thrust into a world of terror that she's scarcely prepared to handle. While waiting for the assassination attempt to go down, Gina's new underworld cohorts snatch Sheriff Sam Weston as a victim for her to torture, thinking that they are doing their new friend a favor. Weston is the sheriff of a small Georgia county and wakes up bound, gagged, naked, and furious. When confronted by the beautiful woman and her sinister friends, he does what he has to do to live. At first angry and then intrigued, Sam agrees to help Gina uncover the identity of the mysterious man behind the hit on the district attorney. Can Gina trust the handsome sheriff?

More than 40,000 people die each year in motor vehicle crashes in the United States, and many more are seriously injured. Reducing this toll is a major goal of governments at all levels. Since the 1960s, the number of fatalities per mile driven has fallen by 75 percent owing to a combination of public and private actions to improve driver performance, motor vehicles, the highway environment, and postcrash emergency response and medical care. As a result, thousands of deaths and millions of injuries have been prevented. Nevertheless, the consequences of motor vehicle crashes continue to be a major public health problem and the leading cause of death among children and young adults. Continued growth in motor vehicle travel means that larger and larger improvements in crash rates are needed to produce any reduction in the total number of people killed and injured in crashes each year. Yet improvements in crash rates in the United States have been lagging behind those of many other developed countries.
