Green Villages

As you can see in the picture, this community is much larger and more complex than my Green Community was. So you must spend some time studying its details. As shown this community needs a square region 1.25 km wide. If this community was to use the more normal agricultural system I use in my independent hamlets, then it would need a square region of 1.75 km wide.


This community will basically consist of 16 green communities clustering around a village centre. And you should know a lot quite about them because they were described in detail in my last webpage: "Green Hamlets - Integrated", which you have just read. The other item in the diagram is the Village Centre (situated in the centre). And you will learn all about this in my next webpage "Village Centres". So this webpage will be quite short.


If you look at the above diagram, then the obvious object, you see at the centre, is the "village" (all drawn in light green). But this "village" is not a political entity at all. All the streets of houses belong to the appropriate green hamlets and their officers are in charge of what goes on there. The house of hamlet representatives (the governing body of the village) is just in charge of what goes on in the inner octagonal village centre. This division of responsibilities is terribly important. In the current world, normal people have never thought about autonomy at all (i.e. what level of government should be in charge of what activity). I cover the subject a little in my webpage:Known Mathematical Political Results”. I cover the subject more completely in my “Society of Choice - book”(pdf). I person needs some mathematical training before making decisions about this very dangerous important subject of autonomy.

This picture shows a road going round the

centre's centre. This can carry small

village buses that will go out to the outside







You will notice that in my picture above there is a red disc at the centre. This represents an underground station that will swiftly take all villagers to their extensive town facilities. But these facilities will only exist if the village belongs to a "Green Town-States". If the village does not belong to such a state, then the village must provide its own public transport system to the local town and city. This is shown in the picture on the right.











This picture shows 24 hamlets forming a village.


I have drawn these villages as squares because this was the easiest way of drawing them. But it would have be slightly better to form these villages in hexagonal shapes - because this form can allow more hamlets to fit round a village centre. The picture on the left then shows how hexagonal shapes can fit together. Then the picture on the right shows how 24 hamlets can fit around a village centre. So our villages could now support 2,400 people. So a village could now support a better social life for all its members.



You might have noticed that I have given a fair amount of wildlife land to my hamlets and to my towns. But none to my villages. I did this simply because it would make my village pictures much harder to draw. Our villages centres should certainly also have some wildlife associated with them. So, if we have 24 hamlets, then at least one hamlet area should be used as a village wildlife park.



The essential webpage you now must read is: "Village Centres".
