I wonder if it is because you are not in the UK? The link definitely works. Just tried it myself.
Sorry Sue :(

I agree there is a need for change but I also see the need to protect the heritage of the area. Not everywhere needs to look like a modern lego estate. You can drive around the UK these days and most new housing estates and the houses on them look like the same small structures, too many of which are crammed on to a small plot of land in order to make the most profit. I suppose it's not unlike the days when rows of terraced houses were built but they were built to meet the needs of workers within a town/village.
