MPs have subjected the government's flagship sustainable communities plan to savage criticism for ignoring environmental factors.

Their attack came as deputy prime minister John Prescott convened his sustainable communities summit in Manchester this week.

Mr Prescott has championed the idea of concentrating house building in new communities in the Thames Gateway, Milton Keynes, Ashford and the Stansted/Cambridge area.
