Three developments by Gloucester-based developer Newland Homes have been shortlisted for the title of Best Development at the prestigious LABC West of England Building Excellence Awards.

Local Authority Building Control (LABC) represents all local authority building control teams in England and Wales.

The largest business to business awards in the building control sector, the LABC Regional Building Excellence Awards recognise quality in all types of building project.

Brooklands in Evesham, Rectory Gardens in Maisemore, and Sixpenny Wood in Chipping Sodbury have all been shortlisted for the title of Best High Volume New Housing Development.  The winners will be announced on 15 September.

The category recognises excellence in external appearance and internal planning, layout and landscaping, overcoming site constraints and attention to safety, security and accessibility.

Jeremy Drew, Design Director for Newland Homes, said: “The LABC Awards are a recognition of quality and dedication from the experts in the industry and having won the regional event twice in recent years, we are pleased to be shortlisted again with three impressive developments.

“We think that our homes are some of the best on offer in the region, thanks to the careful design process that goes into every home on every development, as well as considerate approach to building that ensures that an area’s history and features are at the forefront to decisions such as the materials we use to build the homes.”

Completed in 2019, Sixpenny Wood is a select 20-home development conveniently located within easy walking distance of Chipping Sodbury town centre.  It is an attractive mix of three and four-bedroom properties in a unique woodland setting, with many homes boasting attractive stone detailing, reflecting the area’s former life as a quarry.

The last property at the 47-home Brooklands development in Evesham was sold last year.  This collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes was popular with homebuyers looking for quality and ease within the picturesque Vale of Evesham, but with easy access to the town centre.

There are just two properties remaining at Rectory Gardens, Maisemore – both impressive four-bedroom homes. Rectory Gardens borders beautiful open green space, within minutes of the city of Gloucester.
