The topics of this blog are Armand-Jean du Plessis, Cardinal Duke of Richelieu, and the IDEAL CITY built on his command next to his magnificent CHÂTEAU on the borders of Touraine, Anjou and Poitou, in France.

The town's planning development proposals are revised

 - le Plan Local d'Urbanisme -
(or PLU)
The development plan for the Cité Ideale de Richelieu and its modest conurbations has been the subject of reconsideration and updating by the minicipality.  The policy results have just been published by the townhall for public consultation.  
Until today's revisions, the planning directions for the town were the consequences of a policy of protection outlined in the 1960s and 80s.  This new 2010 revision brings these policies up-to-date and corrects those aspects of development policy that were found to be either counter-productive or to have unforeseen negative qualities.

But when? - O when? - are they going to complete the longed-for by-pass sector whose alignment is established but incomplete.  Meanwhile every Euro-truck in France grinds past the walls of the town.  Look at page three below to see the problem.
