Council homes nominated for award

Three recently-built council housing developments have been nominated for prestigious awards.

Homes in Wrights Lane in Sutton Bridge, Stonegate in Cowbit and Millfield Gardens in Crowland are in the running to win accolades in this year’s Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards for the East Midlands.
The homes, which were all built recently by South Holland District Council and rented to tenants, have each been nominated in the best small new housing and best social or affordable housing categories.
The awards ceremony takes place at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on July 3 and regional winners will be automatically shortlisted for the LABC Grand Finals held in London in the autumn.
Christine Lawton, district council portfolio holder for housing landlord, said: “We are very proud to have been nominated for these awards and hopefully we will be celebrating on July 3.
“The nominations are testament to the dedicated work of our housing team and their commitment to providing quality rented accommodation for people in South Holland.
“The homes in question were all built to a very high standard and have been welcome additions to our housing stock.”
A spokesman for LABC said: “The awards celebrate all that’s good in the construction industry.
“We look for vital elements in the creation of excellent buildings; technical innovation, sustainability and high performance.”
Earlier this year, South Holland District Council launched a housing company which will provide 142 new homes, including quality rented accommodation, in the district over the next two years.
