Sustainable Communities

It is vital we engage with local communities to ensure our developments meet the needs of local people. Community engagement is integral to the journey, from planning right through until site completion.

There were celebrations at this year’s Housebuilder Awards when we were named both Large Housebuilder of the Year and Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year.

Our group managing director, Andrew Richards, picked up the prestigious prizes at a ceremony on November 7th at the Tower Hotel in London, compered by comedian John Culshaw.

We won Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year for our Linden Homes National Apprentice Programme, the Linden Homes Foundation, as well as championing a pragmatic retrofitting scheme as an option to government’s Code 6 zero-carbon building regulations.

Our St Nicholasgate development in Beverley, near Hull, also received a Highly Commended award for Best Regeneration Project. We were also shortlisted for Best Community Initiative and Best Customer Satisfaction Initiative.

Andrew Richards said: “We are very proud to be winners and finalists in categories that are central to our business philosophy: customer satisfaction, sustainability, community and regeneration.

“It is testament to the passion and drive of our people and evidence of our commitment to deliver industry leading homes and service to our customers.”
