Parkleys was the first major Span development of the architect Eric Lyons (1902-1980) (President of the Royal Institute of British Architects 1975-1977). He worked under Walter Gropius 1936-7 and became noted for forward looking housing developments with attention to landscape and community development, beginning with Parkleys in 1955-6. His practice collected many awards and even as recently as 2005, Span received a Housing Design Award for schemes meeting the current Sustainable Communities Plan.
