The Mountfield Park development in South Canterbury has been presented with the inaugural ‘Best New Neighbourhood Award’ at the prestigious annual Housing Design Awards held on 10 July.
Designed by Proctor and Matthews Architects, the plans for Phase 1a of the Mountfield Park project, which will comprise 140 new homes, joined eighty shortlisted schemes from around the UK, before reaching the final list of winners.
Launched in 1948, the Housing Design Awards promote innovation and quality in housing design, and aim to raise awareness of home design which serves the needs of residents, in order that good solutions can be replicated. The judging panel, which includes industry experts and government officials, consider that all the winning entries are worthy of a national platform.
The Housing Design Awards are the only national recognition scheme promoted by all five major professional institutions – the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Royal Town Planning Institute, the Landscape Institute and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.
