Peter Green talks to designer Peter Dobson about plans to build new prefabricated bungalows at Wellington in Shropshire to preserve the community feel that has developed through the shared experience of post-war prefab dwelling. They may be flimsy but a noble idea from the planners, especially when Green talks to one woman who couldn't wish for anything better than her beloved bungalow.
