Southwark Council celebrates success at the Inside Housing Development Awards
8 November 2021
Southwark Council celebrated the achievements of its development programme at the Inside Housing Development Awards ceremony on Thursday 4 November 2021. The council won the Best Development Team in London Award, and William Cuffay House, a new council block in Walworth, was highly commended in the Best Affordable Housing Development under £10m category.
Southwark Council has one of most ambitious council homes building programmes in London, aiming to start or deliver 2,500 new council homes by May 2022.
Councillor Stephanie Cryan, Cabinet Member for Council Homes and Homelessness, said, “I’m absolutely thrilled with our success at the Inside Housing Development Awards and proud that the hard work of colleagues across the council to provide desperately-needed new council homes is being recognised. These awards are a fantastic achievement and will only spur us on to keep delivering truly affordable homes for our community.”
The New Homes programme was judged on its performance over the past year, how the teams built relationships and worked with stakeholders, and how they ensured that resident’s needs were met.
William Cuffay House is a 17 unit council block that was completed in January 2021. The development was judged on how it meets local housing need, its design and sustainability features, and the tenure of the homes.
