Not wearing it's sustainable credentials on its sleeve, it is great to see the scheme has recently been gaining recognition and picked up two accolades at the London Planning Awards:

  • The Mayor’s Award for Good Growth

  • The Mayor’s Award for Sustainable and Environmental Planning

London faces a worsening homelessness crisis. With 55,000 London households living in temporary accommodation, it’s essential that we build more homes. But it’s also crucial that development is high quality, environmentally sustainable, and wins the support of the local community. This is why we’re proud to be part of the London Planning Awards – celebrating the outstanding development projects that are so important to meeting London’s housing needs.”

Cllr Darren Rodwell, London Councils’ Executive Member for Housing & Planning
