Parkleys is Grade II listed by English Heritage for its architectural interest as the first major 'Span' development by architect Eric Lyons (President of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) 1975-1977). He worked under Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus) and became noted for progressive developments with signature attention to landscape and community, with a blend of modernism with more traditional elements like tile hanging and stock brick. Beginning with Parkleys in 1955-6, his practice collected many awards and even as recently as 2005, Span received a special Housing Design Award given to schemes that meet the current Sustainable Communities Plan.
