Government delays eco-town design competition – Building Design

Government plans for a competition to “set the design standards” for its eco-towns programme have been delayed by at least a year amid mounting hostility to the 10 proposed developments.

The contest, announced last October by then housing minister Yvette Cooper, was set to involve “leading creative thinkers” in architecture and landscape design, as well as a so-called citizens’ panel. It was due to name winning proposals early this year.

But the competition, run by Cabe, the RIBA and the Prince’s Foundation, has now been mothballed until this October.
