Kenilworth council housing project up for national award

Leamington Editorial 19th Jul, 2023   0

A COUNCIL housing project in Kenilworth has been shortlisted for an award.

The project, which has involved a collaboration between the public and private sector to build 620 much-needed homes at Stoneleigh View, has been shortlisted for a national housing award.

The partnership between Warwick District Council, Local Housing Company Milverton Homes and Countryside Partnerships is providing the local area with a mix of high quality, sustainable, affordable and private homes.

Once complete, these homes will be offered for private sale, private rent, as council homes or for shared ownership. Half of the properties at Stoneleigh View, including the council and private rental homes, will benefit from advanced building fabric efficiencies including air source heat pumps and solar panels, giving them a net-zero carbon rating.

Warwick District Future Homes Partnership is now in the running for an Inside Housing Development Award, with the results announced at a ceremony in London in September.

WDC’s housing spokesperson Coun Paul Wightman said: “The council is working hard to meet the housing needs of a growing population. It is therefore really positive that our strategic partnership work to enable the creation of high quality, affordable and energy efficient homes in an area where house prices are above the national average and private rentals are in short supply has been recognised.”
