Network, one of London’s largest Housing Associations, has won ‘Housing Association of the Year – Bronze’ and ‘Best Starter Home – Bronze’ at the What House? Awards 2015, the housebuilding industry’s major annual awards ceremony.
The awards, now in their 34th year, were presented in front of 1,700 of the industry’s most senior figures at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Friday 20 November.
Helen Evans, Chief Executive, Network Housing Group, said: “Network has restructured its governance and next year we will consolidate our legal structure to become a single organisation. The major changes we have made in the last 18 months have already significantly improved our all-round performance. Having more than doubled our surplus to £49 million and with the second largest housing grant allocation in London for 2015-18 we believe there is more we can do.
“Network has an outstanding development function, which is based on the approach that we must do everything that we can to meet the housing crisis in London and the South East. Last year we developed more new homes than any other housing association in the country relative to the size of our existing stock.
“Winning these awards is testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Network.”
243 Ealing Road (Best Starter Home – Bronze) is a joint venture between Network Housing Group and the What House? Housebuilder of the Year, Hill, which has transformed a neglected part of West London. The development is part of a wider £520 million regeneration project in Alperton, Brent.
It comprises 441 apartments located alongside the Grand Union Canal, each with access to a private patio, terrace or balcony; eight distinct communal gardens, including an orchard, two play areas and an innovative sensory garden.
The development is within 200 metres of Alperton’s Piccadilly Line station linking residents to the heart of London.
