A private housing development usually involves standard houses at a set distance from the road. Breaking the rules consists of blurring the edges between vehicle and pedestrian with the use of different materials and the creation of houses in a mixture of forms.  The terms "local character" and "sense of place" describe this development and give it an identity which avoids the bland and mediocre.
