Building massive neighborhoods in the outskirts

Building massive neighborhoods in the outskirts

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? Different approach to housing should found to prevent unsustainable movement of people out of the city. I believe that huge amount of AirBnBs suggests that there is space for everyone to live within the city boundaries and avoid emitting carbon while commuting for work/leisure. What do you need to make this change? a different Council housing strategy, regulations from the Parliament ?

Points

Remote neighbourhoods forces people to drive everywhere

Building these neighbourhoods just creates large areas of population with people reliant on cars. We've seen the huge suburbs in the USA - they absolutely do not work. If new areas are built they need to be effectively linked to high-quality public transport and active travel networks, be higher density and have local shops. The "15 minute city" that Paris is championing right now is what we should be doing - no-one should be more than a 15 minute walk from all necessary amenities.

Reduce need for commuter travel. No STL/STR's improves numbers of houses for everyone.
