Just back from a visit to London making a contribution for Wales on the Party's 'Sustainable Communities Commission'. With updates from Ruth Kelly and Hazel Blears I found the chance to share and compare our policy practise and experience very interesting.
I also had the chance to catch up with Albert Owen MP and his team and was pleased to speak to Betty Williams MP who was in very good health !
I called by Albert's big new greenhouse - well not really!. As a town planner I took the chance to see the new Eurostar terminal at St Pancras, and what a great place to spend a few minutes taking in coffee (not the long champagne bar) and a special rail atmosphere. The pictures can't quite capture the scale and grandeur of the station. Up until some 10 years ago I spent many an hour in the nearby unison hq and to now see the British library and St Pancras shows the power of regeneration and investment.
