Warning over adverse impact of development on children

Poorly designed road and housing developments are invading children's space, according to the government's "green" advisory body, the Sustainable Development Commission.
The commission has published a report which claimed that large building projects, aircraft flight paths and busy roads are causing excessive noise levels, increased pollution and safety fears and preventing children from enjoying their local parks and neighbourhoods.
