Countryside secures two commendations at the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards

First time buyer readers' awards

We are proud to have received two ‘highly commended’ ratings at this year’s First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards. The awards, currently in their 11th year, seek to celebrate organisations that have demonstrated excellence in producing top-quality homes for aspiring buyers across a range of criteria.

Countryside was ‘highly commended’ in two categories – ‘Private Developer of the Year’ and ‘Best Large Development’ for Beaulieu, one of our flagship projects in partnership with L&Q in Chelmsford, Essex.

The ‘Private Developer of the Year’ category provided us with a great opportunity to demonstrate our impressive track record in customer service and showcase a number of exciting milestones we reached as a company, including a significant increase in home completions and securing planning consent for our 3,000-home scheme at Beam Park, the second largest UK scheme to gain planning approval in 2018.

The ‘Best Large Development’ category featured Beaulieu, Countryside and L&Q’s ambitious new scheme delivering 3,600 homes, new community, health, sport and retail amenities, Essex’s first all-through primary and secondary school, and a day nursery and education centre. The development will also include a second primary school, hotel, business park, relief road, and a new train station.

Securing these commendations is a testament to the hard work of all those involved in our projects, and we are excited to be able to continue creating the places people now happily call home.
