Parkleys is Grade II listed by English Heritage for its architectural interest as the first major Span development by ground breaking architect Eric Lyons - President of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) 1975-1977). Together with his co-founder Geoffrey Townsend, their far sighted goal was to create affordable, well-designed homes in landscape settings, which would foster a village community atmosphere. Lyons had worked under Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus) and became noted for progressive developments with signature attention to landscape and community, mixing a blend of modernism and more traditional elements like tile hanging and stock brick. Parkleys was built in 1955-6 but even as recently as 2005, Span received a special Housing Design Award given to schemes that meet the current Sustainable Communities Plan.
