We're on the hunt for organisations that have excelled in community consultation, their consideration of the local market, commitment to environmental sustainability and sensitivity to design when planning their scheme.

This award submission must be for a scheme that has gained planning permission. The scheme must be 30 homes or less and can be mixed tenure (with at least 30% of homes being affordable).

Don't forget to include the following in your entry:

  • A minimum of eight high-res images of the project/scheme (internal and external)
  • Architect's drawings
  • Floor plan(s)
  • Area and site location maps
  • Evidence of planning permission (entries must have received resolution to grant planning permission at a minimum)
  • Company logo/s
  • Postcode

Judges will be looking for entries that have met at least three of the following criteria:

  • Describe and evidence what consultation with the local community has taken place to ensure that the scheme has considered the local environment.
  • Demonstrate how the development meets the needs of the local market (price entry points, affordability data etc), local strategy requirements and has responded to demand.
  • Evidence how any specific challenges or local considerations were taken into account when gaining planning permission.
  • Demonstrate how the scheme shows a strong commitment to environmental sustainability;
    • tell us about your environmental strategy and what you’ve achieved
    • tell us how you’ve made homes affordable at the point of sale and what measures (if any) you’ve taken to minimise future costs
  • Demonstrate how the design features make the most of the site potential as well as showing sensitivity to intimate neighbourhoods and surrounding area.
