David Lock Awarded with Ebenezer Howard Medal

At the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) Parliamentary Reception at Portcullis House yesterday evening, our founder David Lock, was presented with the Ebenezer Howard Medal which recognises the outstanding contribution of recipients to delivering the Garden City Principles. The award is rarely bestowed, the last time being 1999. First introduced in the 1930s after Howard’s death, others who have received the award include Raymond Unwin, Barry Parker, Patrick Abercrombie, Elizabeth Mitchell, Frederic Osborn and Sir Peter Hall.

David received the honour in front of family, friends and a select number of those who have played a part in his more than 50 years of professional endeavour. This prestigious achievement is a well-deserved recognition of David’s efforts to champion and deliver communities and opportunities to better the lives of so many.

Everyone at DLA extends their very best wishes and congratulations to David.
