龐德伯里因查爾斯王子擁有的莊園中的盆栽而引起的爭論

威爾士親王所擁有的一個莊園的一位居民說,她將為在她家門外種植的花草而戰鬥。

但威爾遜-瓊斯女士說,如果她被迫將它們移走,她將發起請願活動。

龐德伯里的建設工作始於1993年,是查爾斯王子支持的一個項目的一部分,他希望利用傳統建築創造一個新的城市區域。

威爾遜-瓊斯女士在今年年初開始在她母親去世後繼承的這處房產外擺放植物。

"園藝是我的愛好,"她說。她說:"我母親在我17歲時帶我去了切爾西,然後我就有了這個想法。

她說:"有人告訴我,我可以有四、五種植物--目前至少有100盆,"她說。

這位退休人員說,她相信如果查爾斯王子知道公國命令她縮減綠色植物,他會感到 "羞恥"。

"植物是他的東西。這與他想要的一切都相違背,這與他的整個人生相矛盾,"她補充說。

康沃爾公國的一位發言人說。"我們歡迎加強庭院外觀和環境多樣性的舉措,但是這些舉措需要有適當的規模和性質,要認識到庭院的設計主要是為了提供行人和車輛通往住宅、車庫和停車位的通道。

"我們知道,當地居民已經提出了關於大面積收集的投訴,我們將繼續與植物的所有者和相關的開發商合作,以達到一個合適的結果"。


A resident of an estate owned by the Prince of Wales has said she will battle to keep a floral display planted outside her home.

But Ms Wilson-Jones said she would start a petition if she was forced to have them removed.

Work to build Poundbury began in 1993 as part of a project endorsed by Prince Charles, who wanted to create a new urban area using traditional architecture.

Ms Wilson-Jones started putting plants outside the property, which she inherited when her mother died, at the start of the year.

"Gardening is my passion," she said. "My mother took me to Chelsea, aged 17, and I got the bug.

"I've been told I can have four or five plants - there must be at least 100 pots at the moment," she said.

The retiree said she believed Prince Charles would be "mortified" if he knew the Duchy was ordering her to scale back her greenery.

"Plants are his thing. It's against everything he would want, it would contradict his whole being," she added.

A spokesman for the Duchy of Cornwall said: "We welcome moves to enhance the appearance and environmental diversity of courtyards, however these need to be of an appropriate scale and nature, recognising that the courtyards are designed mainly to provide pedestrian and vehicular access to homes, garages and parking bays.

"We are aware that complaints about the large collection have been raised by local residents and we will continue to work with the owner of the plants and the relevant developer to achieve a suitable outcome."
