Royal welcome to first ‘Trim Town’ – Scotland on Sunday

IT IS the town that promises to help you to stay thin.

The Prince Charles’ Foundation for the Built Environment is planning the new town with more than 300 homes, shops, other businesses and leisure facilities on land near Cumnock in Ayrshire.

But it will be the first in the UK to be specifically designed with the health of its future residents in mind.

The new town, which may be called Knockroon after a nearby farm, will incorporate a range of features to discourage residents from using their cars, and lead them to adopting a healthier lifestyle.
