The particular significance of New Earswick lies in its 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 Domestic Architecture at
New Earswick, BA dissertation, University of Reading, 1983. Waddilove L:
One Man's Vision, London, 1954.
