Canning Town's hidden history: pioneering good homes for all (Newham Voices)

Reading this months "Newham Voices" (early via subscription) I did not realise that Newham had been a test bed for Parker Morris space standards on new build Council properties. There are many problems with properties built during this period but the size and living space of those built to Parker Morris standards is amazing. These decent homes standards was ended by the Tories in 1980 quelle surprise.

Well done to Eastside Community Heritage for this project.
