Countryside, in partnership with Kingston Council, wins Best Community Engagement Outcomes at 2022 Building London Planning Awards

Best Community Engagement Outcomes award

We are delighted that our joint venture partnership with Kingston Council has been recognised in the Best Community Engagement Outcomes category at this year’s Building London Planning Awards.

The Building London Planning Awards celebrate and champion outstanding town planning and creative development from across London’s built environment sector.

The award was won for our engagement with residents and stakeholders of the Cambridge Road Estate, Kingston. Cambridge Road Estate is Kingston’s latest regeneration scheme, delivering a mix of up to 2,170 new high-quality, ‘greener’ homes, and new community facilities including green spaces and play areas. 941 of these much-needed homes will be affordable, with a minimum of 114 council homes.

Our partnership with Kingston Council is driven by the vision to create sustainable and safe communities and to deliver a range of housing options to meet diverse needs. In early 2020, estate residents voted in favour of the estate’s joint venture regeneration and together, we aim to meet the demand for much-needed housing, creating the foundation for future generations to thrive.

This timely recognition is testament to the strong collaborative relationship we have with our partners and our continued efforts to find ways to deliver high-quality housing that meets the diverse needs of local residents.

Daniel King, Managing Director, West London and Thames Valley, Countryside said: At Countryside we are committed to delivering high-quality schemes which positively impact the communities in which we operate. We are delighted to have been recognised for our work with Kingston Council to regenerate the Cambridge Road Estate, improving the safety and environment for local residents and bringing new, much-needed homes to the area. Huge congratulations to our teams and partners for achieving such exemplary results.''
