Nick Boles, the Government’s Planning Minister, has paid a visit to Davidsons Homes award winning ‘Millbrook’ development in Melbourne, Derbyshire
‘Builtfor Life’ is a government endorsed standard for well designed homes and neighbourhoods and is awarded to new housing developments that have been judged to be attractive, functional and sustainable places. It reflects the Government’s commitment to build more homes, better homes and involve local communities in planning.
Planning minister Nick Boles said: “Building for Life principals show the importance of good design in creating vibrant places and beautiful buildings and the benefits it can bring in making development acceptable to people living next door. They are an incredibly useful guide for all involved in development and bring big benefits for both builders and buyers.”
