Here in London the housing market is over-heated and micro-developer projects in non-contested fields, such as those not in Conservation Areas, are an alternative to housing stock contribution other than through ‘volume house builders’/ Incidentally this is a House of No Style. that we embrace suburban stylistic tendancies through strategies such as ‘Mod Tudor’ should be seen by planners as empowering and non-threatening in scale of development.
