While the public battle over Marks & Spencer continues apace, the company's flagship 'Lifestore' in Gateshead will be the centre of attention on Thursday next week. It is the launch venue for CABE's latest initiative to improve standards of housing design, a publication which could make the public more discriminating purchasers. Produced by the Building for Life organisation chaired by designer Wayne Hemingway, the publication is called The Home Buyer's Guide: what to look and ask for when buying a new home (£7.99). CABE is also launching a new website, www. thehomebuyersguide. org, which will provide internet back-up and an ongoing source of information about the benefits of good design and where to find it.

Apart from CABE, Building for Life is also supported by the Civic Trust and, importantly, the House Builders Federation.
