On the one hand, he agreed it was beyond the resources of any private individual or body to restore the entire area. Without the intervention of some public authority with sufficient powers and resources to do so, there was a grave risk of the same kind of haphazardous development taking place as before the war.

Not only were owners keen to rebuild, but local planning authorities already had the powers to impose conditions as to density, layout, size and design. As the legal counsel for the County Council pointed out, these were essentially negative powers. The planning authority could not compel owners to develop according to any desired plan. Refused consent for their choice of development, they might simply leave the land in its present ‘abominable and derelict state’. A ‘gappy’ or ‘pepper-pot’ type of development would evolve, with ‘certain types of building on larger, better plots’ intermingled with smaller plots, ‘left unoccupied to go to wrack and ruin’.

Of far more concern to some contemporary commentators was the risk that the two movements would distract attention from the immediate necessity of improving living conditions within the houses themselves. As the Manchester Guardian emphasised, in reporting the Manchester conference, this had to remain the priority. If the individual buildings remained overcrowded and, in the worst sense, a slum, a municipal plan would convey a false impression of decency (Sutcliffe 1981b).
