Housing Design Awards open for entries
Published by Max Salsbury for 24dash.com in Housing and also in Development
The Housing Design Awards (HDAs) - back for the 65th year - are open for entries.
The HDAs are open to housing schemes with four or more dwellings in England for both completed projects and projects with detailed planning permission.
Highlighted in the Government's Housing strategy as to how it will champion design and innovation during the current Parliament, the HDAs are overseen by a team of 16 judges who undertake a desktop review before visiting their shortlist of 30+ schemes, considering everything from a development’s build quality to the resident experience to the role of the local authority.
Entries are made online and scheme details and images are collated in a compendium of entries that is used internally at sponsoring partners, such as the Homes and Communities Agency and the GLA, to track design patterns in schemes built with their grant support or on their land.
The awards ceremony will be held in central London on July 4.
Those interested in entering their own schemes should visit www.hdawards.org before the deadline of March 4.
