Town Planning Thread
There seems to be a decent amount of discussion on here about town planning. I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread to put our thoughts, opinions and ideas on the subject in one place.

Personally, living in Britain, I can see that unplanned cities are the norm, but this wasnt the case throughout human history. Human settlements are meant to be planned and designed. Every so often they need to be redesigned, the more often this happens the more efficient the settlement.

In the Anglosphere atleast, every city and town is basically the same, unplanned sprawl, chaotic and disorganised and difficult to get around and enjoy.

For this reason, I think cities are better if organised something like a grid. Main roads can take cars across the cities, but large 1kmx1km squares of residential areas would be car-free with more green spaces.

Anyway, the above is my two-cents. Feel free to add your own.
