Leading Midlands landlord whg has been shortlisted for two industry awards for its work to build new affordable homes across the region.
The housing association has been named finalists in two categories of the Inside Housing Development Awards 2019.
The Old School House in Tettenhall Wood was shortlisted in the Best Shared Ownership Development. The 17-home development, on the site of the old Tettenhall Wood School, successfully preserves the historic features of the Victorian school house and incorporates them into the newer sections.
Silver Court, in Brownhills, has been named a finalist in the Best Regeneration Project. The £16m scheme of 157 homes transforms an inaccessible and overgrown canalside into a thriving and desirable waterfront development. The development includes whg’s third wellbeing scheme for the over 55’s, Ellum Pointe, where customers are supported to live independently in their own homes.
Rebecca Bennett Casserly, whg’s Corporate Director of Development, said: “We are delighted to be recognised for our work to provide quality and affordable homes across the region. Our developments are not just about bricks and mortar, but also about creating desirable communities where people want to live, and to be shortlisted in two categories is a testament to our work in doing just that.”
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 27th November in London.
The Inside Housing Development Awards are an opportunity for landlords, developers and architects to enter their best developments and teams to be recognised in the UK.
