PRP meets Prescott's £60k new-build challenge

  • Comment
An exemplar £60,000 house by PRP Architects has been unveiled at the Delivering Sustainable Communities Summit in Manchester this week.

The house is based on the brief issued by the ODPM last week, when it announced a competition for developers to put together homes for £60,000 or less.

Speaking at an event called 'Sustainable Communities: Homes for All', deputy prime minister John Prescott challenged developers to build homes for 'key workers and first-time buyers' costing £60,000.

'Creating sustainable communities is about more than buildings, and our ambition is about much more than housing alone,' he said.

'Today we are publishing our five-year 'Sustainable Communities: People, Places and Prosperity'. It sets out our proposals to give communities across the country more say in the decisions affecting their lives,' he added.
