Distinctively Local

PRP, PTE. HTA and Proctor & Matthews

How can we boost housing supply whilst creating beautiful and popular homes? PRP, Pollard Thomas Edwards, Proctor & Matthews and HTA design have published Distinctively Local, a new report that demonstrates how this can be done.

The report is a positive response to housing minister Kit Malthouse’s challenge to architects to help Britain achieve the government’s ambitious housing targets by "building the homes the next generation deserves". In January 2019, he said: "If you get the design right - the scale, the context, the fitness - communities will feel enhanced and respected, and will lay down their petitions and placards."

The report focuses on new suburban and rural housing, including urban extensions, suburban infill and completely new settlements. It aims to inform and inspire those who may be planning, designing, delivering or hoping to inhabit new developments, including the latest generation of garden towns and villages.
