Three Countryside Partnerships schemes shortlisted at the British Homes Awards 2023

We are proud to share that we have been shortlisted in three categories at this year's British Homes Awards with Beaulieu in Essex, Rochester Riverside in Kent and South Oxhey Central in Hertfordshire all recognised.

The British Home Awards is one of the most prestigious in the industry and recognises excellence and innovation in the sector, with a particular emphasis on architecture, interior design and build quality.

Our joint venture development with L&Q, Beaulieu, which comprises circa 3,600 homes across 604 acres in Chelmsford, Essex, has been shortlisted in the Best Mixed-use Development category. Creating a thriving neighbourhood that truly meets the needs of modern living, alongside delivering high quality new homes, Beaulieu also provides new community, health, sport and retail amenities, Essex’s first all-through primary and secondary school, a day nursery and education centre.

Rochester Riverside in Kent has been shortlisted in the Best Housing Partnership category, recognising the successful joint venture between Countryside Partnerships and Hyde. Transforming a 74-acre brownfield site into a new mixed-tenure community, the scheme will eventually deliver 1,400 new homes, alongside green spaces and public amenities.

Lastly, South Oxhey Central, our £218m mixed-use regeneration scheme with Home Group, has been shortlisted for Regeneration Scheme of the Year. The recognition celebrates how the existing South Oxhey town centre in Hertfordshire and three unused sites have been turned into a modern and vibrant hub for local residents and businesses. Set amongst two acres of landscaped parks and public spaces will be 55,000 sq. ft. of retail and commercial space, including a 18,500 sq. ft. Lidl food store, a revamped retail experience at Carpenders Park railway station and 659 new homes.

With a reputation for delivering new homes with high-quality design and innovation, these wins are testament to the hard work of our team. We look forward to the awards ceremony at Raffles London on Thursday 5th October, when the winners will be announced.
