Fields. A planning notice. 200 dwellings due to arrive subject to approval. A date to respond by. Processes to be followed. A town plan sometime in the past will have drawn around this zone in red and written a number next to it. Maybe 200, maybe more. And in the future this view, itself new because the road on which this sign is displayed is itself recent, will be homes and streets. This laminated piece of paper says so. It is the future.
