2-light half dormer casements to spinal range, pairs of 3-light casements to

contribution to the development of low cost housing in Britain. Experience
gained and practices introduced here were incorporated extensively into the
Tudor Walters Report of 1918 which was instrumental in the passing of the
Addison Act of 1919. Plans from New Earswick influenced the Government
Manual on low cost housing which followed the Act. Sinclair A: Planning and
