Cities in the UK should be re-designed by people with jobs in town planning under simple guidelines, one resident has suggested.
Voicing his opinion in the Guardian, Jon Reeds from Wallington in Surrey stated that traditional methods of restructuring cities should be employed when building eco-towns.
In a letter to the newspaper, he stated that places in Britain need to be redeveloped because "towns and cities are the future for most of us".
The government should concentrate on building "compact, walkable cities, served by rail-based transit," Mr Reeds suggested.
"We don't need inter-urban high-speed rail, we should equip our cities with light rail or metro systems," the reader added.
One area that has recently been criticised for its poor transport links is Milton Keynes.
A survey by Campaign for Better Transport revealed that it was the worst town out of 19 for its public travel services.
