In 2008 the Department for Communities and Local Government commisioned URBED and the Town and Country Planning Association, to organize a two day study tour to Dutch communities.  The findings were published in the TCPA journal article above: New Communities - Looking and Learning from Dutch Experience.  Following this tour and incorporating URBED's case studies of new settlements in Freiburg and Amersfoort, Sir Peter Hall and Nicholas Falk drew out the conclusions and asked 'Why not here?' which is also downloadable from above.  Presentations of the findings were made to a number of conferences.
