NU living attended the National Housing Awards this afternoon in London and came away with the award for the Best Scheme in Planning for the Cambridge Road development in Barking.
This award recognises the challenges faced when submitting a scheme for planning. The judges were looking for:
- How the local community have been consulted to ensure that the scheme has considered the local environment.
- How the development meets the needs of the local market, local strategy requirements and how it has responded to demand.
- Evidence of how any specific challenges or local considerations were taken into account when gaining planning permission.
- How the scheme shows a strong commitment to environmental sustainability whilst remaining affordable for future residents.
How the design features make the most of the site potential as well as showing sensitivity to intimate neighbourhoods and the surrounding area.
Representatives from Swan and NU living were at the event this afternoon to collect the award from Alexander Armstrong.
The sales launch of Cambridge Road is due to take place at the end of October. More details to follow.
Fantastic news! Well done to all.
