It contains two landscaped walks -- Vallon des Brumes and Sentier des Fers Sauvages--but for the most part is laid out much like a traffic-free suburban housing estate, with permanent trimmed beech enclosures at the end of a series of culs-de-sac
to contain the small temporary gardens made for each festival.
The tempo, which at first seems uniform, is in fact delightfully variable, accelerating through gooseneck curves and then slowing into lariats and culs-de-sac
. The pictures' swooping rhythms suggest a born-again Mondrian, a limbered-up version of the stiff theosophist, as if his taste for boogie-woogie had finally sunk into his hips and arms.
The council's town planning manager, Mr Andrew Jeyes, said: "A planning application has been submitted which asks for access to be made through both culs-de-sac
. We've sent letters to residents, informing them about the application, but at the moment we have no plans for further consultation."
