Return Of The Prefab?
An independent report has identified the development of new style prefabricated houses with "green" credentials as a potential major contribution to Britain's chronic housing shortage. But it is said that prefabs, which were built and erected in large numbers to solve the post-war housing crisis, got a bad name for shoddy design and poor construction.
Half a century on, the many Ipswich prefabs in Sidegate Lane West and Humber Doucy Lane look as if they are still doing well! Food for thought here?
