Four more £60k house competition winners revealed

  • Comment
Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott has unveiled the latest wave of winners in his high-profile £60k house competition.

Four teams have been picked by English Partnerships to build 'design for manufacture' houses on sites across the south of England - a move which will create nearly 300 new homes.

PCKO, Broadway Malyan, the Radley House Partnership and Make with ACD were chosen as part of developer-led teams on projects at Dartford, the Park Prewett Hospital site in Basingstoke, Hastings and Aylesbury Vale respectively.

Announcing the successful bidders yesterday (5 December) in the wake of the government's response to the Barker Review of Housing, Prescott said: 'My £60,000 home competition has proved wrong those critics who claimed you can't have both quality and quantity.

'I congratulate the latest winners who are setting a new benchmark for design and quality and look forward to seeing their designs come alive on site next year.'

The preferred developers were the Countryside Consortium, Westbury Homes and William Verry.

Prescott's competition announcement comes less than a month after he revealed the first round of victorious architectural consortia ( £60k house competition results unveiled).

The deputy prime minister hopes the raft of new £60,000 homes will help solve what he claims is a national housing shortage.
