Three developments shortlisted for National Housing Awards

Three Notting Hill Housing developments which will provide hundreds of affordable homes for Londoners have been shortlisted in three categories for the National Housing Awards 2017.

Shortlisted for Best Large Development, Royal Albert Wharf, part of the regeneration of the Royal Docks, is a 9.6-hectare site which will deliver 1,500 new homes and offers a variety of property types to suit a range of buyers. Its unique design and inspired layout of the development ensures great value homes for house hunters looking to buy in this up-and coming East London enclave.

Part of this development is an exciting community engagement scheme that will bring together the local community and provide an array of fun amenities. The site also plays host to the Bow Arts Trust, where artists from all over London can find workshops to suit their needs.

Traders’ Quarter, shortlisted for Best Marketing Campaign, is part of the Oxley and Ballymore development, Royal Wharf, also in the Royal Docks. Its innovative campaign focuses on the area’s history and thriving community, drawing on the site’s authenticity and vibrant atmosphere.

The campaign also presents customers with a clear route to gaining home ownership by highlighting the Shared Ownership scheme available at this site, and clearly setting out the options available to those needing more affordable accommodation.

Reynard Mills, a brand new development shortlisted for Best Scheme in Planning, will provide 195 homes to help people get onto the property ladder and redevelop the existing neighbourhood.

The scheme has been praised for its exemplary consultation process, which invited the local community and stakeholders to give their feedback on the plans. As a result of this process the development will see reduced density and an increase in green amenity spaces, play areas for children, wheelchair and adaptable units, whilst also ensuring that the homes remain truly affordable.

Katie Bond, Director of Development, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted. The nominations highlight the diversity of our development programme and housing that we offer across London, and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to providing high quality homes for Londoners. These shortlisted developments not only provide homes for people to live, but create new communities where people can put down roots and enjoy everything that London has to offer.” 

Jenny Murphy, Head of Sales and Marketing, added: “Being shortlisted for such prestigious national awards is really exciting for Notting Hill Housing. It’s fantastic to see recognition for the hard work that has been put in from across all departments, which create great places for people to live. In the sales and marketing team we’re particularly excited to see two of our East London schemes nominated, as this is a really important strategic growth area for us in the next five years.”

The judges will now examine the shortlisted developments and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 7 September 2017.
