Britain’s town of the future

Totnes in Devon was the subject of a big article in The Observer magazine yesterday as a result of all the work done by the local Transition Town group there. The article, featuring an interview with Transition guru Rob Hopkins, details how the town is a blueprint for building sustainable communities that will have the resilience to survive the twin challenges of climate change and more scarce and expensive energy. Where Totnes has gone, Whitstable can follow!
