The Dorset village of Poundbury is 20 years old today and the man whose vision helped create it was there to join in the celebrations.
That man is of course Prince Charles.
Martin Dowse reports.
Pranksters have altered a road sign to the village of Poundbury in Dorset with one that reads 'Ugly Buildings'. It's thought to have been the work of locals who are unhappy about new buildings added to the villlage on the outskirts of Dorchester.
Poundbury was built by Prince Charles in the 1990s with architecture that harked back to traditional English villlage design. The newer, much bigger buildings have divided local opinion.
Campaigners in Dorset say proposed cuts to council budgets are nothing short of a massacre. Today hundreds of people marched through Dorchester in protest at multi million pound cuts.
On Thursday [14th] Dorset County Councillors will be voting on whether to cut a further £11 million pounds from their budget during 2013/14.
The Trades Council has organised a public a march from Poundbury to the new council offices at West Dorset District Council, protesting against the cuts.
