Housing quality is a major issue in the UK today with press coverage of poorly-built developments. How do we ensure new homes built on York Central are of high quality, and indeed what does “high quality” look like? From New Earswick through to Derwenthorpe, the Rowntree name has been associated with innovation in housing and attempts to ensure good homes and to drive forward standards. This will be a guided tour of the Derwenthorpe housing development followed by a discussion of the lessons which can be learned (in a local pub), and will be a chance to talk with residents about their experience of living there. Many thanks to Derwenthorpe Residents’ Association for their help with this.
