Speaking at the Housing Design Awards ceremony in London’s Banqueting House yesterday (3 July), Flint cited the overall winner – ShedKM’s Chimney Pot Park in Manchester – as a glowing example of how the ambitious target could be met.
Chimney Pot Park – Urban Splash's development of the street made famous in the opening credits of Coronation Street – and the other award winners (see below) were described as examples of ‘flexible, adaptable homes... that had been built as part of communities’.
‘The standard we see here today should be the norm,’ added Flint.
