Space – the final frontier: Sustainability & housing standards

This paper briefly describes how building control and ultimately housing standards developed in England from the twelfth up to the mid-twentieth century. It argues that once the medical and technical problems of human settlement were solved and standards began to be based on purely spatial considerations they became unsustainable, particularly with the mass ownership of private cars and low density urban sprawl.

Keywords: Space, Sustainability, Housing standards
