The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is to celebrate the 2001 centenary of the model village of New Earswick, designed by Raymond Unwin, by commissioning a housing and community masterplan for a 21.5ha site in York. jrf has teamed up with York City Council to run an invited competition for the best ideas for the low-grade agricultural land surrounded by development. Although 'greenfield' land, the scheme aims to apply some of the principles of the Urban Task Force report. Four teams will be selected and receive a 'substantial premium' for completed submissions. Expressions of interest are invited from teams. Call 01904 615901 for more information.
