Prince Charles at 'model village' Poundbury 20 years on

The Prince of Wales is visiting Dorset today to take part in a special reception for people involved in the creation of the Poundbury Project twenty years ago.

Poundbury is an urban extension of Dorchester in Dorset. The creation of Poundbury centred around Prince Charles' beliefs and ideas on town - planning coupled with a long period of public consultation.

It was designed by the Prince of Wales based on the pioneering ideas in his book 'A Vision of Britain', published in 1989.
