Pathfinder Pack on Scottish New Towns
The state of housing in Scotland after World War II was a major problem. Slum dwellings were still a common sight in Scottish cities. Building programmes between the wars had replaced some city slums but the houses built to replace them weren't much of an improvement. A new approach was required to relieve the overcrowding problems in the Scottish central belt and especially in the Clyde Valley. The solution was to build new towns outside the major cities. By 1966, 5 new towns had been constructed in Scotland and thousands of people had moved to a new life.
