On 5th September, United Communities, Cheyne Capital Management, Bristol City Council, and Bristol and Bath Regional Capital (BBRC) won ‘Best Large Scheme in Planning’ at the National Housing Federation’s annual National Housing Awards for HAB Housing’s Elderberry Walk development in Bristol.
The ceremony took place in London’s Mayfair to celebrate innovation, creativity and progression in the affordable housing sector. A panel of judges, including Steve Walker of Steve Walker Consultancy, Alan Camp of Alan Camp Architects, and Metro Supplements Editor, Liz Burcher, chose Elderberry Walk as the winning scheme in its category of six shortlisted developments including the Highly Commended Hatch Farm by Radian Group.
We’re delighted that the Elderberry Walk has been recognised as a ground breaking new scheme. The unique partnership deal between HAB, Cheyne, United Communities, and BBRC will deliver affordable housing, shared ownership houses, ethically rented homes, key worker rented properties, and an exclusive rent-to-buy offering across a range of one and two bed apartments, and two, three, and four bed houses.
The development of 161 sustainable new homes in Southmead, Bristol, is supported by the Southmead Development Trust and the community of Southmead. Elderberry Walk is also a case study for Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s Building with Nature initiative to promote green infrastructure in house building.
Set on the former Dunmail Primary School site, Elderberry Walk will be built with the environment in mind. The scheme will have green infrastructure, including sustainable food production, low carbon energy sources, and new cycle routes throughout the site. Register your interest now.
