Waterloo's High Street, Brant Broughton, Lincoln is the winner of 'Best Residential Development' at The East Midlands Forum for the Built Environment Awards 2017
The winner of the Best Residential Award 2017, sponsored by building solutions firm J Tomlinson, went to a Rural Exception site developed by Waterloo Housing Group at High Street, Brant Broughton in Lincolnshire - following a nomination by architects Halsall Lloyd Partnership.
The scheme, consisting of 13 homes for affordable rent and shared ownership, was built in partnership with the Homes and Community Agency, Geda Construction, Thornton and Firkin, and North Kesteven District Council. The development offers the opportunity for local residents to rent or purchase a home in their local community.
Judges said of the housing scheme: “This development managed to achieve a high level of sustainability whilst not losing aesthetic appeal. The retention of existing site features and characteristics is admirable and shows a good understanding of its sense of place."
