Headline

Anger as Central Hill is rejected for listing

Comment

‘Lacked the combination of finely construed architectural units, integrated into a creative and sophisticated plan.’ ‘Wasn’t a pioneer for social housing at the time and much of the success of the scheme is due to the topography, rather than architectural flair.’ ‘Not the complexity or quality of detail within the architecture to warrant listing at a national level.’ On such aesthetic judgements is the fate of over a thousand residents’ homes decided. Not that Historic England even considered that. Snouts in the trough. Simon Elmer Architects forSocial Housing
